Lubben, Fred; Buffler, Andy; Campbell, Bob; Allie, Saalih
Science Education, v85 n4 p311-27 Jul 2001
Investigates procedural understanding of university students at the freshman level, prior to instruction, in the context of experimental work in physics. Proposes two types of reasoning used by students in the laboratory. Indicates a high degree of consistency of these modes of reasoning across experimental phases of data collection and processing. Suggests a framework from which a laboratory teaching program might be developed. (Contains 17 references.) (Author/ASK)
