Physics Teaching: Does it Hinder Intellectual Development?
Griffiths, David H.
American Journal of Physics, 44, 1, 81-85, Jan 76
Describes an experiment in which physics students were assigned to groups according to Piaget's stages of cognitive development and members of each group were asked to solve an elementary mechanics problem. Analysis revealed that the majority of students, those who were not operating at a formal level of development, may have done more harm than good in attempting to "learn" physics. (CP)
