P. Prasanth; P. Reshma; K. M. Udayanandan – European Journal of Physics Education, 2023
In this article we find the thermodynamics of some large N particles systems and some small N particles classical systems using micro canonical ensemble. Small N particle systems are seldom done in textbooks, since statistical mechanics(SM) systems work for large N systems. We show that small N systems will help the students to get an insight…

Barbara Szymanska-Markowska – European Journal of Physics Education, 2023
The paper presents an assessment of the impact of teaching physics using the Inquiry Based Science Education (IBSE) method on the level of competence and knowledge of primary school students in Poland (second educational stage). The method is based on the teacher-inspired teamwork of students to solve experimental physical problems. This results…

Ozden Sengul – European Journal of Physics Education, 2023
This paper describes a student-centered approach to teaching and learning physics in a high school classroom. The teacher designs and uses a 5E learning cycle to teach series and parallel electric circuits. This article provides an example of the implementation of 5E model for a physics lesson to address three-dimensional learning-science and…

Wei-Ying Cheng; Jennifer Wen-Shya Lee; Shi-Wei Chu – European Journal of Physics Education, 2023
Many educational strategies have been proposed to improve students' learning motivation and outcomes. This paper reports the student learning outcome results of a three-year study centered on the Electronics course at the Department of Physics of National Taiwan University. In the first year, peer instruction (PI) with in-class lectures was…

Álvaro Suárez; Arturo C. Martí; Kristina Zuza; Jenaro Guisasola – European Journal of Physics Education, 2023
The question of the sources of electric and magnetic fields and their causes has been discussed extensively in the literature over the last decades. In this article, we approach this problem from the unified treatment of electromagnetic fields emphasizing the role of their sources in accordance with the cause-effect relationships. First, we…

Hans Eric Muehsler – European Journal of Physics Education, 2023
Lab activities are a vital part of physics courses, providing students with hands-on experiences of classroom topics. At the same time, building self-efficacy is vital to student learning and retention; however, females traditionally have lower self-efficacy in STEM fields. This research explores the role of gender and the changes in interest in…

David A. de Wolf – European Journal of Physics Education, 2023
This work gathers in one place what is pertinent about the connections between metric coefficients, basis- and unit vectors in a four-dimensional relativistic manifold. Some of this material can be found scattered elsewhere; its collection into one place reveals connections that either are not known or are obscure, for example that the metric…

András Juhász – European Journal of Physics Education, 2022
In this part we introduce the Smart Dreamcatcher (SD) network, a visualization of the Microcosmos. The SD-network is a geometrical structure (3-uniform hypergraph) which allows a comprehensible explanation of quantitative characteristics of hadron particles at the level of elaboration by physics of 1970's-80's. The elementary particles correspond…

Jairo Sánchez; Mario Humberto Ramírez Diaz – European Journal of Physics Education, 2022
In this work a review of the research on augmented reality (AR) and its use of the learning of physics in the classroom is carried out. These two concepts of technology and learning are interrelated. Teachers have pre-teaching concepts and methods (conceptual changes), with the aim of having a deeper understanding of physical concepts that occur…

Katarin Alinta Macleod; Silmara Alessi Guebur Roehrig – European Journal of Physics Education, 2022
Science, technology, society, and environment (STSE) education is a focus of the public education system of both Canada and Brazil and therefore should translate into the teaching and learning that occurs within their respective Bachelor of Education programs when addressing Science education, and specifically the connections between STSE and…

Ayse Eren; Sevgül Çalis – European Journal of Physics Education, 2022
This study investigates the effect of life-based teaching using popular science journals on the success of solving life-based questions prepared by associating them with daily life. The study included 6th-grade students studying in a public secondary school in the spring semester of the 2020-2021 academic year. Using the quasi-experimental method,…

David Argudo; Talise Oh – European Journal of Physics Education, 2022
When deriving the equation describing the transverse motion of a one-dimensional vibrating elastic string, introductory physics textbooks often assume constant tension and/or small amplitude vibrations. However, these simplifying assumptions are not only unnecessary, but they overlook the elastic nature of the tension and yield an inconsistent…

Muhammed Said Akar; Sema Altun Yalçin; Pasa Yalçin; Meryem Özturan Sagirli – European Journal of Physics Education, 2022
In this study, it is aimed to investigate the effect of the Context-based Instruction Applications, prepared using verbal problems with real-life content and scenarios, on the level of pre-service teachers' learning areas of "heat and temperature" and "movement and force" and their level of creating contexts in daily life. The…

Eric Kincanon – European Journal of Physics Education, 2022
Teaching upper division statistical physics can often be clouded by the theory and complex examples used. To better help students appreciate the fundamental statistical concepts and how they are connected to thermodynamic principles this paper suggests using a simple abstract model. Using Atkins' Model students can see these ideas clearly…

de Wolf, David A. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2021
Basis vectors e[subscript alpha] play a useful role in special and general relativity. In particular they allow an expansion of the vectorial spacetime interval dl along infinitesimal curvilinear coordinate differences dl = e[subscript alpha]d[Xi][superscript alpha]: (thus the definition e[subscript alpha] = dl/d[Xi][superscript alpha]). In this…
