The Use of the Principle of Relativity in the Interpretation of Phenomena by Undergraduate Physics Students.
Pietrocola, Mauricio; Zylbersztajn, Arden
International Journal of Science Education, v21 n3 p261-76 Mar 1999
Reports on the extent to which the Principle of Relativity was employed by students when dealing with various phenomena. Concludes that the Principle of Relativity is not used as an heuristic tool in students' answers, and that the situations presented were not regarded as "problematic" by the students, who primarily used interpretive structures from classical mechanics and common sense.
