Research in Science Education
written by Jim Woolnough
This article describes a laboratory-based program in physics designed to help students build effective links between the mathematical equations used to solve problems in mechanics and the real world of moving objects. The program is based on a study conducted among senior college students, which illustrated out the value of laboratory work in science education for development of thinking skills and positive attitudes (Contains 14 references).
