Novice Rules for Projectile Motion.
Maloney, David P.
Science Education, v72 n4 p501-13 Jul 1988
Investigates several aspects of undergraduate students' rules for projectile motion including general patterns; rules for questions about time, distance, solids and liquids; and changes in rules when asked to ignore air resistance. Reports approach differences by sex and high school physics experience, and that novice rules are situation independent. (CW)
