Ali, Marlina; Talib, Corrienna-Abd; Hasniza Ibrahim, Nor; Surif, Johari; Halim Abdullah, Abdul – Online Submission, 2016
The purpose of this paper is to show how important "monitoring" is as metacognitive skills in solving physics problems in the field mechanics. Based on test scores, twenty one students were divided into two groups: more successful (MS) and less successful (LS) problem solvers. Students were allowed to think-aloud while they worked on…

Güner, Pinar; Erbay, Hatice Nur – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2021
The purpose of this study is to investigate the metacognitive strategies that middle school students used in the process of solving problems individually. The study group consisted of 37 middle school students in the eighth grade. The students were asked one non-routine word problem, and their written answers were collected. After solving the…

Tursucu, Süleyman; Spandaw, Jeroen; de Vries, Marc J. – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2020
Mathematics is of major importance in science subjects. Unfortunately, students struggle with applying mathematics in science subjects, especially physics. In this qualitative study we demonstrate that transfer of algebraic skills from mathematics in physics class can be improved by using pre-knowledge effectively. We designed shift-problems…

Burkholder, Eric W.; Murillo-Gonzalez, Gabriel; Wieman, Carl – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2021
Previous work has looked at the relationship between high school preparation and student performance in calculus-based introductory mechanics (physics 1) courses. Here, we extend that work to look at performance in introductory calculus-based electricity and magnetism (physics 2), and we look at the significance of what college math courses have…

Griffin-Shirley, Nora; Bozeman, Laura; Nguyen, The; Othuon, Vitalis; Page, Anita; Hahm, Juhyun; Hahm, Juyoung; Lee, Jaehoon – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2021
Introduction: The purpose of the study was to survey orientation and mobility (O&M) instructors who are blind concerning the identification of accommodations, teaching techniques, and resources to teach students with visual impairments (i.e., blindness or low vision). Methods: The study utilized an online survey via Qualtrics (2019) with 27…

Álvarez, Vanessa; Torres, Tarcilo; Gangoso, Zulma; Sanjosé, Vicente – Journal of Baltic Science Education, 2020
In physics and chemistry, the development of problem-solving skills is necessary to become an expert. A simple cognitive model to analyse such development is proposed and tested. An exploratory research was conducted with expert professors and students in initial and advanced years. A think aloud procedure was used to obtain relevant data while…

Ince, Elif – Journal of Education and Learning, 2018
Education policies today aim to raise individuals with 21st Century skills considered as a universal necessity and problem-solving skill is the one of the skills that have emerged as a requirement of the 21st century. Teaching problem solving is one of the most important topics of physics education, it is also the field where students have the…

Williams, Mobolaji – Science & Education, 2018
Physics is often seen as an excellent introduction to science because it allows students to learn not only the laws governing the world around them, but also, through the problems students solve, a way of thinking which is conducive to solving problems outside of physics and even outside of science. In this article, we contest this latter idea and…

This study aimed to determine the differences in science process skills in each class in the Physics Education Study Program. This research was a quantitative study with a comparison design. The sample was 108 students with details of 54 control class students who used conventional guidebooks, while the control class totaling 54 students used a…

Nordin, Norazlilah Md.; Osman, Kamisah – Journal of Education in Science, Environment and Health, 2018
Inculcating collaborative problem solving (hereinafter CPS) skills to help develop students' knowledge, especially for problem solving (PS) involved in the subject of physics is of utmost importance in the 21st century. It was on such grounds that in the present study, physics PS learning was innovated by engaging students' generated animation…

Tursucu, Süleyman; Spandaw, Jeroen; de Vries, Marc J. – Research in Science Education, 2020
Students in upper secondary education encounter difficulties in applying mathematics in physics. To improve our understanding of these difficulties, we examined symbol sense behavior of six grade 10 physics students solving algebraic physic problems. Our data confirmed that students did indeed struggle to apply algebra to physics, mainly because…

Burkholder, Eric; Blackmon, Lena; Wieman, Carl – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2020
Much work has been done to characterize the reasoning of students as they solve mathematics-intensive problems and characterizing differences in expert and novice problem solving. In this work, we characterize the problem-solving strategies in a classroom setting of "transitioning novices," students who have completed an introductory…

Whitcomb, Kyle M.; Guthrie, Matthew W.; Singh, Chandralekha; Chen, Zhongzhou – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2021
In two earlier studies, we developed a new method to measure students' ability to transfer physics problem-solving skills to new contexts using a sequence of online learning modules, and implemented two interventions in the form of additional learning modules designed to improve transfer ability. The current paper introduces a new data analysis…

Bancong, Hartono; Song, Jinwoong – Science & Education, 2020
Thought experiments are personal and tacit processes of experimentation that scientists perform within their own imagery in formulating new theories or refuting existing theories. However, by viewing learning as a social process, this study aims to show that thought experiments can also be constructed collaboratively and to present a detailed…

Reddy, Leelakrishna – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2020
Students' epistemological beliefs are beliefs centred on one's own learning and knowledge. Such beliefs play a major role in the way one approaches problem solving in physics. The intention of this study is to evaluate such beliefs amongst undergraduate physics students. An analytical tool developed by Hammer has been used as a criterion for…
