Conceptual teaching and quantitative problem solving: friends or foes?
written by Linda R. Jones, Andrew G. Miller, and J. Fred Watts
Compared the quantitative problem-solving skills of conceptually-taught and traditionally-taught introductory physics students. Found that students taught conceptually through peer instruction performed significantly better on quantitative exam questions for two out of three exams. However, the conceptually taught students were not as satisfied.
