Interaction of Intuitive Physics with Computer-Simulated Physics.
Flick, Lawrence B.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v27 n3 p219-31 Mar 1990
The question of how children solve force and motion problems in computer simulations without explicit knowledge of the underlying physics was investigated. Keystroke sequences made by children were saved and analyzed, and children were interviewed to understand their perception of the relationship between keyboard input and on-screen action. (CW)
