The Development and Evaluation of Self-Instructional Physical Science Materials Based on Piaget's Analysis of the Growth of Logical Thinking.
Bass, Joel Eugene
Three self-instructional episodes for use in physical science classes were written and tested with ninth grade students. The development was based on Piaget's learning theory leading students from actions with physical apparatus to the formulation of a mathematical equation. The episodes concerned: (1) equilibrium in a balance; (2) the oscillation of a pendulum; and (3) hauling weight on an inclined plane. Pre- and posttest data suggested that one of the episodes led students to comprehend the equations for equilibrium in a balance. Students encountered difficulties in solving problems in the other two episodes. (JG)
