Teaching Students Problem Solving in Introductory Physics--Forming an Initial Hypothesis of Instructors' Beliefs.
Kuo, Vince H.; Heller, Kenneth; Heller, Patricia; Henderson, Charles; Yerushalmi, Edit
This paper presents an initial hypothesis of instructors' beliefs about their role in helping students learn to solve problems in an introductory calculus-based physics course. Instructors see their teaching role as primarily providing resources and making suggestions, with little mentioning of how they influence the students to use the resources or follow the suggestions.
