Nehring, Andreas – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2020
Many models in the field of epistemic cognition conceptualize students' views as being on a continuum between the poles of naïve and informed views. Against this background, the aim of the present study was to find out whether views on the nature of scientific inquiry (NOSI views) should be conceptualized and quantitatively assessed in a more…

Krist, Christina – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Recent reforms in science education emphasize having students develop and refine core disciplinary ideas through participation in science knowledge--building practices. Supporting students' meaningful participation in these practices is challenging, in part because our understanding of how this kind of participation develops is underexplored. This…

Yannier, Nesra; Hudson, Scott E.; Koedinger, Kenneth R. – International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education, 2020
Along with substantial consensus around the power of active learning, comes some lack of precision in what its essential ingredients are. New educational technologies offer vehicles for systematically exploring benefits of alternative techniques for supporting active learning. We introduce a new genre of Intelligent Science Station technology that…

Yakar, Zeha – World Journal of Education, 2020
This is a study that explored 117 Turkish preservice science teachers' views about evolution course. The data for the study were collected through a questionnaire that has open-ended questions. The preservice science teachers answered the questions by filling out the questionnaire at the beginning and end of the evolution course. Most of the…

Irmak, Meltem – Science Education International, 2020
Understanding undergraduate students' socioscientific reasoning (SSR) competencies and nature of science (NOS) conceptions are important for them to be informed citizens. Therefore, in this study, SSR competencies and NOS conceptions of 169 undergraduate students from five different faculties were investigated through survey research methodology.…

de Almeida, Pamella Aline; Onisaki, Hadassa; de Almeida, Juarez Trindade; Costa, Lúcio Campos; Brockington, Guilherme – Physics Education, 2020
Principles of conservation are essential to the physical understanding of the universe. When thinking about its teaching, especially aimed at basic education, experimental activities can be great allies for its understanding. In this article, we present a demonstrative model using a fidget spinner arranged in a structure constructed using 3D…

Ivanov, Dragia; Nikolov, Stefan – Physics Education, 2020
In this paper we consider the well-known experiment with the 'heavy' newspaper that breaks a stick that it is laid on. Using several appropriate control experiments we show that the currently invoked explanation using atmospheric pressure cannot be correct. We perform a theoretical analysis and propose a new explanation based on the rotational…

Cross, Rod – Physics Education, 2020
If a ball rolls at constant speed on a horizontal surface about a horizontal axis then the angular velocity is easily measured. If the ball is projected with additional spin about the vertical axis, then the rotation axis is tilted and it is more difficult to measure the rotation speed. A few examples are presented to show how the separate topspin…

Cheung, Derek Hang-Cheong; Ng, Andy Ka-Leung; Kiang, Kai-Ming; Chan, Henry Hin-Yan – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Prior knowledge of and interest in subject matter are recognised as important factors influencing students' academic achievement and the quality of their learning experience. Teaching students who are diverse in terms of their prior knowledge of and interest in the subject matter is an oft-cited challenge in science general education courses. The…

Canassa, T. A.; Freitas, W. P. S.; Ferreira, J. V. B.; Goncalves, A. M. B. – Physics Education, 2020
We propose an experimental analogy to verify Kepler's second law using a spherical pendulum. We made a movie of a closed elliptical orbit of the pendulum and extracted the data position using the Tracker software. Analyzing the data, we measured the areas that the position vector sweeps showing the validity of Kepler's second law.

Balta, Nuri; Japashov, Nursultan; Abdulbakioglu, Mustafa; Oliveira, Alandeom W. – Physics Education, 2020
Student cognition in response to intuitive and counterintuitive stimuli in the school science curriculum is not well understood. To address this issue, this study examines high school students' cognitive responses to three counterintuitive physics problems. Our analysis reveals that student success in arriving at counter-intuitive physical…

Brunner, Jeanne L.; Abd-El-Khalick, Fouad – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2020
This study investigated the effect of including explicit nature of science (NOS) content in read-alouds of elementary science trade books on the teaching and learning of NOS. We focused on three aspects of NOS: the creative, the empirical, and the inferential NOS. The trade books were read aloud by teachers in three hierarchical levels: Level I…

Putranta, Himawan; Wiyatmo, Yusman; Supahar, X. X.; Dwandaru, Wipsar Sunu Brams – Physics Education, 2020
Physics learning cannot be separated from the existence of physics measuring instruments, but their existence in schools are very limited. Therefore, creativity and innovation are needed to develop physics measuring instruments that are easily accessible by schools. This research aims to design and construct a liquid density measuring instrument…

Ruiz, Michael J.; Perkins, James – Physics Education, 2020
The private company SpaceX regularly launches satellites into geostationary orbits. SpaceX posts videos of these flights with telemetry data displaying the time from launch, altitude, and rocket speed in real time. In this paper this telemetry information is used to determine the velocity boost of the rocket as it leaves its circular parking orbit…

Mesci, Günkut; Çavus-Güngören, Seda; Yesildag-Hasancebi, Funda – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
The purpose of this study was to examine how pre-service science teachers develop their understandings of nature of scientific inquiry during the science laboratory course with preparing 5E based lesson plans, and how they transfer those understandings into their teaching practices. All data were collected and analysed qualitatively by using the…
