Applying a Predict-Observe-Explain Sequence in Teaching of Buoyant Force
Radovanovic, Jelena; Slisko, Josip
Physics Education, v48 n1 p28-34 Jan 2013
An active learning sequence based on the predict-observe-explain teaching strategy is applied to a lesson on buoyant force. The results obtained clearly justify the use of this teaching method and suggest devising a series of activities to enable more effective removal of students' commonly held alternative conceptions regarding floating and sinking. (Contains 1 table and 5 figures.)
