Dove, Jane
International Journal of Science Education, v24 n8 p823-34 Aug 2002
Analyzes the answers provided by (n=98) 12-year-old students to questions on an end-of-the-year science examination. Points out that although students are able to explain day and night, they have difficulties explaining why the moon always presents the same face to Earth. Addresses implications for teaching and learning. (Contains 17 references.) (Author/YDS)
