Linking New Learning with Previous Experiences: An Activity in Teaching Dimensional Analysis.
Schmidt, Stan M.; Werner, Jana Rae
Throughout America's secondary science classrooms, students struggle to master fundamental science principles, especially when math-related applications are involved. For example, in chemistry students struggle to solve quantitative problems. This paper presents an activity that leads to a useful understanding of dimensional analysis; i.e., unit conversions, and an example of linking new information to past experiences in order to promote learning of an otherwise difficult and remote concept.
