Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Laura McCullough
This research paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, examines how math background may interact with gender on the FCI assessment instrument. 300 non-physics students were given one of two versions of the Force Concept Inventory, along with a brief demographic questionnaire. The trends suggest a preliminary conclusion that math preparation has little effect on FCI score.
