Thesis Detail Page

written by Jennifer Blue
Building off of the work of Heller and Lin, Jennifer Blue's thesis analyzes student responses to free-response conceptual tests with respect to the three research questions:

1. Before instruction, are there any differences between men and women in their conceptual understanding of acceleration, as measured by a written, free-response question? Are there any differences after instruction?
2. Before instruction, are there any differences between men and women in their conceptual understanding of the nature of forces, as measured by a written, free-response question? Are there any differences after instruction?
3. Before instruction, are there any differences between men and women in their conceptual understanding of Newton's Second Law, as measured by a written, free-response question? Are there any differences after instruction?
