Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by John Renner, Michael R. Abraham, E. B. Grzybowski, and Edmund A. Marek
The research reported in this study was done to evaluate the understandings developed by students who meet science concepts through a textbook. Findings indicated that concrete concepts were better understood by eighth grade students than formal concepts and that students achieved some understanding of some formal concepts.
