Thesis Detail Page

written by Antti Savinainen
The notion of students' conceptual coherence is introduced in this thesis to clarify what is meant by conceptual understanding. Students' conceptual coherence is divided into three aspects: contextual, representational, and conceptual framework coherence.  The abilities required by the conceptual coherence are discussed as well as ways of evaluating it in the case of the force concept.

A new research-based instructional approach to foster students' conceptual coherence of the force concept and related kinematics is introduced and validated: it brings together interactive-engagement teaching methods and the research on students' difficulties with the target domain.
