This handbook is dedicated to giving teachers clear information on how to correct physical science misconceptions in the classroom.  It aims to help teachers help students develop appropriate understanding based on hands-on, inquiry-based experiences that challenge preconceptions.

The book is organized into units ranging from matter to heat and waves. Each unit includes a list of common misconceptions and activities that help students develop an accurate understanding of each concept. Background information and lessons are provided.

The National Science Education Standards for content and instructional strategies in the physical sciences are also addressed.
