Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by Gloria Dall'Alba
The ways in which the concept of acceleration is treated in physics textbooks is compared with understandings of the concept demonstrated by final-year secondary (n=30) and first-year university students (n=60). Some students' understandings are shown to be incomplete in ways that parallel misleading or inaccurate textbook treatment of the concept.
