What Makes Science Hard?
Tobias, Sheila
American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education, v55 n4 p378-82 Win 1991
A study in which nonscience professors and graduate students took introductory physics and chemistry courses and found that what makes science unappealing or difficult for some is not subject matter or lack of student preparedness but the way science is packaged. Problems with curriculum design, testing, grading, classroom climate, presentation, language, and pacing emerged. (MSE)
