A Law of Physics in the Classroom: The Case of Ohm's Law
Kipnis, Nahum
Science & Education, v18 n3-4 p1-34 Apr 2009
Difficulties in learning Ohm's Law suggest a need to refocus it from the law for a part of the circuit to the law for the whole circuit. Such a revision may improve understanding of Ohm's Law and its practical applications. This suggestion comes from an analysis of the history of the law's discovery and its teaching. The historical materials this paper provides can also help teacher to improve students' insights into the nature of science.
