Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by Igal Galili, Sharon Bendall, and Fred Goldberg
Reports a study (n=27) concerning the knowledge about image formation exhibited by students following instruction in geometrical optics in an activity-based college physics course for prospective elementary teachers. Student diagrams and verbal comments indicate their knowledge can be described currently as intermediate: a hybridization of preinstruction knowledge and formal physics knowledge.
