Balkan Physics Letters
The Ways University Physics Students Conceive of the Nature of Science
written by M. Turanli, U. H. Ozden, D. Demirhan, and Z. Gurel
In this research, university physics students were asked their opinion with respect to major ideas on the way science creates knowledge. The sample of the research consists of 140 students from different physics departments of Marmara University. The purpose of the study is to investigate student ideas about science and to find out their intuitive philosophical beliefs of science with respect to gender differences, class, and their different socio-economic status of study. In order to find out the students' own philosophies of science through their responses to specific statements, a questionnaire was used. (The questionnaire was taken from Nott and Wellington and translated into Turkish by experts). The obtained data was evaluated by computer, commented on, and proposals have been stated according to the obtained results.
