Tural, Güner
Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, v16 n1 Article 15 Jun 2015
Geometric optics is one of the difficult topics for students within physics discipline. Students learn better via student-centered active learning environments than the teacher-centered learning environments. So this study aimed to present a guide for middle school teachers to teach lenses in geometric optics via active learning environment including hands-on activities. Teachers and students' views were taken about the activities via opinion form. The results showed that teachers and students found the activities instructive, motivating and interesting.
