International Journal of Science Education
written by David Hammer
This paper describes a distinction between two ways in which students may see the role of conceptual knowledge in introductory physics.  Is a belief that conceptual knowledge constitutes the core of physics understanding?  Is a belief that the associations between conceptual knowledge and physics are apparent but not essential? Excerpts from interviews of two subjects illustrate this distinction in a range of interviewing activities and show its relevance for understanding students' work in an introductory physics course.
