Journal of College Science Teaching
Exploring Students' Conceptions of Density: Assessing Nonmajors' Understanding of Physics
written by Linda E. Roach
Employing action research in a large-enrollment university-level physical science class, the author assessed students' understanding of density with short answer pop quizzes. The result was that the more opportunities the students had to test, explore, and discuss the concept of density, the greater understanding they demonstrated of the subject.
