Investigating and promoting epistemological sophistication in quantum physics
written by Jessica R. Hoehn and Noah D. Finkelstein
While the physics community has made significant strides to go beyond traditional conceptual and content mastery by focusing on student epistemologies, examinations of domain-specific epistemology have been less common in physics. This paper examines how students think of physics' connections to the real world in two different contexts: classical mechanics and quantum mechanics. We demonstrate domain-specific perspectives, show sophisticated reasoning by students (who hold different perspectives), and suggest that faculty perspective and instructional practices influence students' views.
