Searching For Evidence Of Student Understanding

  title={Searching For Evidence Of Student Understanding},
  author={Tara Bartiromo and James Finley and Eugenia Etkina},
There is a strong emphasis in physics education research on the use of multiple representations to help students explain physical phenomena and to solve physics problems. In this paper, we report on students’ use of multiple representations in the analysis of kinematics problems. The students learned kinematics using the Physics Union Mathematics curriculum*. When we examined pairs of representations in student work (motion diagrams and graphs), we found that students were often consistent but… CONTINUE READING
