Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by Shulamith G. Eckstein and Michal Shemesh
A study (n=631) of children's ideas on motion of objects is reported. On three items of a four-part questionnaire, responses changed as the children matured, passing through distinct, successive stages with respect to their conceptual understanding. If teaching strategies to overcome misconceptions are to be effective, they must be appropriate to the particular misconceptions prevalent at each stage.
