Research in Science and Technological Education
written by Menahem Finegold and R. Mass
Good problem solvers and poor problem solvers in advanced physics (N=8) had significantly different levels of ability in translating, planning, and physical reasoning, as well as in problem solving speed; no differences in reliance on algebraic solutions and checking problems were noted. Implications for physics teaching are discussed.
