Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by David E. Meltzer
This paper, presented at the 2001 Physics Education Research Conference, shares the results of a diagnostic quiz administered over the past two years in the calculus-based introductory physics course at Iowa State University (ISU). This quiz focuses on heat, work, and the first law of thermodynamics. The written quiz responses of 653 students in three separate courses are analyzed in detail, to shed light on the path on which learning takes place.
