A study on the beliefs about the role of physics and physicists amongst introductory students
written by Miguel Rodriguez and Geoff Potvin
Modeling instruction in introductory physics has been found to generate positive learning and affective outcomes for students. This study focuses on what students from modeling instruction think about physics, their physics classroom experiences, as well as their perceptions of what it means to be a "physics person", drawing on the lens of identity. We collected data for a four person case study using one-on-one interviews with a purposeful sample of participants nearing the end of their 2nd semester of physics. The results will motivate a broader study of students' beliefs about the role of physics and physicists and how a modeling instruction experience differentially impacts these beliefs in comparison to a more traditional classroom environment.
