Lewis, Eileen Lob
Journal of Science Education and Technology, v5 n1 p3-31 Mar 1996
Studies the conceptual changes and factors affecting eighth- grade physical science students (n=180) investigating elementary thermodynamics. Classifies three types of students regarding their learning methods: converging, progressing, and oscillating. Reports that original intuitive conceptions are difficult to change and that students engaged in activities requiring sustained reflection make greater cognitive gains. (MVL)
