Trowbridge, David E.; McDermott, Lillian C.
American Journal of Physics, v48 n12 p1020-28 Dec 1980
Describes a systematic investigation of the understanding of velocity by students in introductory physics courses. Data were obtained using the individual demonstration interview, similar to the clinical interview. Results are reported for success of different populations in comparing velocities for two simultaneous motions. Implications for instruction are briefly discussed. (Author/SK)
