Physics Education
written by A. Hellstrand and A. Ott
This paper describes a way of teaching the theory of relativity with the aid of a novel (Stannard, R., 1989:  [Faber and Faber]). The experiment is part of a large research project whose aim is to contribute to the formation of didactic theories by means of an evaluation of alternative methods. The preliminary examination reported here has given such remarkable results that they should also be of interest outside the project group.
