Students ’ understanding of direct current resistive electrical circuits

  title={Students ’ understanding of direct current resistive electrical circuits},
  author={Paula Vetter Engelhardta and Robert J. Beichner},
This section of AJP includes physics education research ~PER! articles. It continues the editorial process that began with the green PER Supplementary Issues to AJP published in July of 1999–2001. The PER section ~PERS! is a response to the tension between the long-standing policy of AJP not to publish research articles and the growing interest within the AAPT community in PER. Articles in the regular section focus on the physics that students have difficulty understanding and on pedagogical… CONTINUE READING
