Revising Explanatory Models to Accommodate Anomalous Genetic Phenomena: Problem Solving in the "Context of Discovery."
Hafner, Robert; Stewart, Jim
Science Education, v79 n2 p111-46 Apr 1995
Examines how problem solving in the domain of Mendelian genetics proceeds in situations where solvers' mental models are insufficient to solve problems at hand (model-revising problem solving). The study addressed the heuristics characteristic of successful model-revising problem solving and other aspects of student model use. (LZ)
