Misconceptions in First-Year Undergraduate Science Students about Energy Sources for Living Organisms.
Boyes, Edward; Stanisstreet, Martin
Journal of Biological Education, v25 n3 p209-13 Fall 1991
Questionnaire results indicate that, although first-year, undergraduate science students (n=109) recognize the correct sources of energy for organisms, they simultaneously hold misconceptions about other essential, but nonenergy-supplying, conditions as sources of energy supply. Occurrence rates for these misconceptions vary with the students' prior learning level. (12 references) (JJK)
