Students Learning Problem Solving in Introductory Physics--Forming an Initial Hypothesis of Instructors' Beliefs.
Henderson, Charles; Heller, Kenneth; Heller, Patricia; Kuo, Vince H.; Yerushalmi, Edit
Based on an analysis of structured interviews with 6 research university physics faculty members, this paper presents our initial hypothesis of instructors' beliefs about how their students learn to solve problems in an introductory physics courses. The hypothesis shows that these instructors have very general beliefs about the process of student learning that do not include many details about actual learning mechanisms. (Author)
