Using research to guide instruction: New insights into student understanding*
MacKenzie R. Stetzer
University of Washington
New insights into student understanding continue to emerge from ongoing investigations by the Physics Education Group at the University of Washington. Two projects that focus on electric circuits and dynamics are part of a larger effort to develop and refine research-based instructional materials for several different student populations. The results have strong implications for instruction in introductory and upper-level physics courses and laboratories as well as in special physics courses for preservice and inservice K-12 teachers.
