Thesis Detail Page

written by Robert Culbertson, James Archambault, Theresa Burch, Michael Crofton, and Angela McClure
Kinematics concepts in physics have been modeled algebraically, graphically and with motion maps. However, the investigators have noticed that despite the many representations available to them, students show a strong preference for solving kinematic problems algebraically. Students were required to solve kinematics problems exclusively utilizing graphical representations prior to being introduced to methods of algebraic solutions. Results indicate that students who received the treatment chose graphical methods for solving kinematics problems more frequently, and demonstrated stronger gains in understanding kinematics concepts overall than those students who did not receive the treatment.
