Journal of Science Education and Technology
written by Ricardo Trumper
This article discusses the results of a four-year study of the conceptions of energy held by science teachers in training. Concludes that the group held a number of different alternative conceptual frameworks. The most important findings of this study can be summarized as follows. Despite their pre-service training, future physics high school teachers: think that energy is a concrete entity and not an abstract idea, do not accept the idea of energy degradation, and confuse the concepts of energy and force.
