written by Duane Deardorff
The objective of this qualitative study is to examine and document how introductory physics students treat the uncertainty of measurements. In meeting this objective, the conceptions and practices of physics instructors (primarily graduate teaching assistants) are also examined in order to define a reference standard to which the student practices may be compared.
