A Study of the Nature of Students' Models of Microscopic Processes in the Context of Modern Physics Experiments.
Thacker, Beth Ann
American Journal of Physics, v71 n6 p599-606 Jun 2003
Interviews university students in modern physics about their understanding of three fundamental experiments. Explores their development of models of microscopic processes. Uses interactive demonstrations to probe student understanding of modern physics experiments in two high school physics classes. Analyzes the nature of students' models and the type of information that they used to build them. (Author/KHR)
