The Physics Teacher
written by Fred Goldberg and John Anderson
This article investigates the nature of college student difficulties with negative values of velocity by using interviews. The authors discuss graphical representation of negative values of velocity and interpretations of graphs involving negative values of force and suggest some instructional implications from the discussion.
