Dynamic Mental Models in Learning Science: The Importance of Constructing Derivational Linkages among Models.
Frederiksen, John R.; White, Barbara Y.; Gutwill, Joshua
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v36 n7 p806-36 Sep 1999
Presents a theory of learning in science based on students deriving conceptual linkages among multiple models which represent physical phenomena at different levels of abstraction. Finds that high school students who were exposed to derivational links among three models for basic electricity performed better when solving both qualitative and quantitative problems on current and voltage. Contains 21 references. (Author/WRM)
