Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by John Frederiksen, Barbara Y. White, and Joshua Gutwill
In this article the authors present a theory of learning in science based on students deriving conceptual linkages among multiple models which represent physical phenomena at different levels of abstraction. The authors find that high school students who were exposed to derivational links among three models for basic electricity performed better when solving both qualitative and quantitative problems on current and voltage.
