Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Salomon F. Itza-Ortiz, Benjamin Lawrence, and Dean A. Zollman
We investigated students' mental models for energy, and changes in these models in going from mechanics to electromagnetism contexts. We interviewed students in a two-semester calculus-based physics course. Our research design included semi-structured interviews with demonstration. Based on our findings in the interviews we are developing a first version of an 'Energy Mental Model Inventory.'
