Learning To Solve Problems By Scaffolding Analogical Encoding
STEM integration: Using a hydroponic curriculum to engage STEM integration
Brief Description of Poster: In science education, one of the biggest concerns was that often science instruction is disconnected from students’ everyday experiences and knowledge (Levin & Andrew,… Expand
STUDENTS' EPISTEMIC MODES WHILE MAKING SENSE OF ACTION MOVIE CLIPS
everyday experiences. We used action clips from popular movies to examine the extent to which students can construct their knowledge and what source of knowledge they use to explain situations shown… Expand
ASSESSING COLLEGE STUDENTS' TRANSFER OF LEARNING FROM CALCULUS TO PHYSICS USING NON-TRADITIONAL PROBLEMS +
This research investigated students’ transfer of learning from calculus courses to an introductory physics course using non-traditional physics Jeopardy problems. We used semi-structured think-aloud… Expand
DESIGNING INTERACTIVE WEB PAGES USING
growing trend is to create interactive applications that can be accessed remotely over the World Wide Web. These applications are especially useful in the academic and scientific research community… Expand
STUDENTS' CONCEPTUAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE CONTEXT OF MICROSCOPIC FRICTION: A CASE STUDY WITH TWO STUDENTS
tion. We conducted teaching interviews with twenty (20) introductory college physics students in order to investigate how they dynamically construct/reconstruct their knowledge. In this paper we… Expand
DO STRUCTURE MAPS FACILITATE EXPERT-LIKE PROBLEM SOLVING STRATEGIES IN PHYSICS?
We explore the use of structure maps by students in an algebra-based physics course and the evolution of these maps based upon students’ feedback collected over one semester. Expand
INTRODUCTORYCOLLEGE PHYSICS STUDENTS' MENTAL MODELS OF FRICTION AND RELATED PHENOMENA AT THE MICROSCOPIC LEVEL
We investigated introductory college physics students’ mental models of friction and lubrication through semi-structured clinical interviews. Our results show that students’ mental models of friction… Expand
