Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Carolann Koleci
Why do novices use examples so extensively, no matter which subject area? Examples are often helpful because they reveal how to get from problem descriptions to theoretical re-formulations. Moreover, problem solving in semantically rich domains, like physics, requires one to translate a given problem description into theoretical concepts. We address some of the important issues of knowledge transfer, in the context of introductory mechanics, using data from an on-going sample-exam study conducted at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
