Examining the productiveness of student resources in a problem-solving interview
written by Lisa M. Goodhew, Amy D. Robertson, Paula R. L. Heron, and Rachel E. Scherr
It is central to the resources theoretical framework that the knowledge elements that comprise thinking – i.e., resources – are sensible, based on experience, and continuous with formal physics. While many authors agree that students' conceptual resources can be framed as continuous with formal physics, few have discussed how and in what ways specific resources are productive for learning. We closely examine the progression of one introductory physics student's thinking during an exploratory problem-solving interview, attending to the role that specific conceptual resources play in the evolution of her ideas over short time-scales. Two commonly activated resources for wave propagation (treating a pulse as an object moving through a medium and treating a pulse as a propagating disturbance) are integral to the conceptual progress she makes during this episode, and therefore can be considered productive for this situation.
