The Process of Conceptual Change in Force and Motion during Computer-Supported Physics Instruction.
Tao, Ping-Kee; Gunstone, Richard F.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v36 n7 p859-82 Sep 1999
Investigates the conceptual-change process in grade 10 students during a computer-supported physics unit. Finds that many students vacillated between alternative and scientific conceptions from one context to another during instruction, and those few students who did exhibit context-independent and stable conceptual change appeared able to accept the generalizability of scientific conceptions across contexts. Contains 57 references. (Author/WRM)
