Monaghan, James M.; Clement, John
Journal of Science Education and Technology, v9 n4 p311-25 Dec 2000
Hypothesizes that the construction of visual models, resolution of these visual models with numeric models and, in many cases, rejection of commitments such as the belief in one true velocity, are necessary for students to form integrated mental models of relative motion events. Studies high school students' relative motion problem solving. (Contains 52 references.) (Author/YDS)
