Knowledge in Transition: Adults' Developing Understanding of a Principle of Physical Causality.
Perry, Michelle; Elder, Anastasia Danos
Cognitive Development, v12 n1 p131-57 Jan-Mar 1997
Examined precursors of knowledge change in college students' developing understanding of gear movement. Found that only some participants changed their problem-solving approach after instruction. Results suggest that having multiple approaches available and using instructional information to build on not-well-developed conceptions may contribute to understanding knowledge change for adults with respect to their developing understanding of physical causality.
