Cognitive Science
written by Michelene T. H. Chi, Paul J. Feltovich, and Robert Glaser
This study investigates the how experts and novices' representation of physics problems relates to the organization of physics knowledge. Results show that experts initially abstract physics principles to approach and solve a problem representation, whereas novices base their representation and approaches on the problem's literal features.
