Lee, Okhee; And Others
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v30 n3 p249-70 Mar 1993
The purpose of this study involving 12 classrooms was twofold: (1) to understand the conceptual frameworks that sixth-grade students use to explain the nature of matter and molecules, and (2) to assess the effectiveness of 2 alternative curriculum units in promoting students' scientific understanding. Results reveal that students' entering conceptions differ from scientific conceptions in various ways. (Author/PR)
