Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Dawn C. Meredith and Daniel E. Young
For introductory life science students, fluid dynamics is a topic of great relevance, yet difficult to understand conceptually. This pilot study focuses on implementing and assessing curricular interventions to help students understand pressure, vacuums, and pressure gradients. Our pedagogical strategy was to focus on mechanistic reasoning and a multiple-scale view of fluids. Student learning was assessed through open-ended conceptual questions administered before and after instruction. Initial results show that significant gains were achieved.
