Iliaki, Georgia; Velentzas, Athanasios; Michailidi, Emily; Stavrou, Dimitris – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2019
Background: Research regarding students' ideas about the nature of sound reveals a variety of conceptions about sound. In order to reconstruct these ideas and explain sound phenomena, researchers' teaching interventions often make use of everyday-life contexts. However existing research on sound only partially addresses the correlation between the…
