Using Computer Simulation to Restructure Students' Conceptions of Force.
Gorsky, Paul; Finegold, Menahem
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, v11 n2 p163-78 1992
Reports on the development and application of a series of computer programs which simulate the outcomes of students' perceptions regarding forces acting on objects at rest or in motion. This dissonance-based strategy for achieving conceptual change uses an arrow-based vector language to enable students to express their conceptual understanding. (16 references) (Author)
