"Approaches to the Teaching of Special Relativity Theory in High School and University Textbooks of Argentina"
Arriassecq, Irene; Greca, Ileana Maria
Science & Education, v16 n1 p65-86 Jan 2007
In this work, we presented an analysis of the representation of the special relativity theory (SRT) in the most used texts in high school, Polimodal level and university level in the teaching in the Argentine Republic, from a historic, epistemological and didactic perspective. The results show that none of the analyzed texts would allow a contextualized approach on such theory.
