Ndiaye, Yakhoub; Hérold, Jean-François; Chatoney, Marjolaine – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2022
Background: Many researchers have investigated student reasoning in Newtonian mechanics. In 1979 Viennot revealed that most students associate the concept of force with the velocity or acceleration of a motion. Forty years later, student understandings remain a major challenge for teachers. The implications of this challenge are still unclear,…

Canlas, Ian Phil – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2021
Background: Understanding students' preconceptions is an important initial step towards a successful and meaningful learning in physics. This is more relevant and important especially for concepts that are introduced formally as early as preschool including friction. Visual representation maybe often used as an aid to teaching, however,…

Ates, Özlem; Ates, Ali Murat; Aladag, Yasar – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2021
Background: Numerous studies have been conducted to identify students' perceptions of science and scientists since the 1950s. Those studies have revealed that students have stereotypical perceptions, on which teachers may have a significant effect. It is, therefore, essential to determine both teachers' and students' perceptions. Purpose: The aim…
