Adams, Deanne M.; Pilegard, Celeste; Mayer, Richard E. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2016
Learning physics often requires overcoming common misconceptions based on na├»ve interpretations of observations in the everyday world. One proposed way to help learners build appropriate physics intuitions is to expose them to computer simulations in which motion is based on Newtonian principles. In addition, playing video games that require…
