Coletta, Vincent P. – Physics Teacher, 2020
Adequate sleep is essential for students to be able to solve challenging problems effectively. After many years of advising students to get enough sleep the night before their final exam, two studies were conducted with students in introductory physics classes to investigate their sleep habits. In the first previously published study, few students…

Herrada, Rosario I.; Baños, Raúl; Alcayde, Alfredo – Education Sciences, 2020
In recent years, several innovations have emerged in the field of education, including Blended-Learning, Massive Open Online Courses, Flipped Classroom and Gamification. In particular, several investigations have highlighted the effectiveness of student response systems, or clickers, in different subjects and disciplines. Although some literature…

Gelir, Ali; Kocaman, Merve; Pekacar, Ilgim – Physics Education, 2019
In conventional e/m experiments performed in undergraduate laboratories, generally a simple mechanical ruler is used to measure the radius of the circular trajectory of the electrons. But, the measurement error in this technique is mostly big and varies from one student to another. As an alternative to a mechanical ruler, we proposed a more…

French, A.; Kanchanasakdichai, O.; Cullerne, J. P. – Physics Education, 2019
When students of the of the physical sciences transition from school to university, they discover that knowledge of calculus is as vital as arithmetic, and that there is precious little useful information written without calculus. However, the lack of calculus in pre-university physics studies persists, especially in its application to the…

Sikora, Joanna – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Although the gender gap in non-compulsory science attracts much attention, few studies compare factors that shape it at subsequent life stages. Here, a life-course approach is used to examine the gender gap in science career expectations at ages 16, 23 and 26 for a recent student cohort. Then, a decomposition is applied to assess what share of the…

Cullerne, J. P.; French, A.; Poon, D.; Baxter, A.; Thompson, R.N. – Physics Education, 2020
This paper describes the further development of the "Epidemiology of Eyam" project at Winchester College since the publication of our previous paper (French "et al" 2019 Phys. Educ. 54 045008). A much wider cadre of students have been involved with this recent phase of the study, and we have also benefitted from a sabbatical…

de Paiva, Eduardo – Physics Teacher, 2016
Every year millions of people contract cancer in the world, and according to prediction of the World Health Organization by the year 2030 there will be about 27 million new cases. Because of these figures and the resulting social and economic implications of this disease, radiotherapy, which is one form of treatment that uses ionizing radiation,…

Wurman, Ze'ev; Donovan, William – Pioneer Institute for Public Policy Research, 2020
In the fall of 2019, well before the appearance of COVID-19, there was heightened concern among U.S. business leaders, economists and investors about a global economic slowdown and the possibility of a recession in 2020. But a downturn in the technology sector was not prominent among their worries. In the decade from 2018 to 2028 computer and…

Abdul-Razzaq, W.; Biller, R. D. – Physics Education, 2010
Introductory physics laboratories have seen an influx of "conceptual integrated science" over time in their classrooms with elements of other sciences such as chemistry, biology, Earth science, and astronomy. We describe a laboratory to introduce this development, as it attracts attention to the voltage induced in the human brain as it…

Carnicer, Jesus; Reyes, Francisco; Guisasola, Jenaro – Physics Teacher, 2012
In introductory physics courses, within the context of studying Newton's laws, it is common to consider the problem of a body's "weight" when it is in free fall. The solution shows that the "weight" is zero and this leads to a discussion of the concept of weight. There are permanent free-fall situations such as astronauts in a spacecraft orbiting…

Tovar-García, Edgar Demetrio; Alòs i Font, Hèctor – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2017
This article empirically studies the impact of bilingualism on educational achievements. This relationship has been thoroughly studied in a number of countries around the world, but not in Russia. We used a sample of 709 ethnic Tatar school students aged 15-16 (in the ninth grade) in the spring of the year 2010. We found a positive significant…

Cruz-Guzmán, Marta; García-Carmona, Antonio; Criado, Ana M. – International Journal of Science Education, 2017
A qualitative study of an interpretative nature is presented of the topics that elementary pre-service teachers (EPTs) choose and the types of questions they propose when designing an experimental activity (ExA) as inquiry, after receiving explicit instruction about it. The participants in the study were 154 EPTs organised into small groups to…
