The Use of Representations in Evidence-Based and Non-Evidence-Based Physics Activities
written by Joshua S. Von Korff, Chang Zhan, Birjoo Vaishnav, Jacquelyn J. Chini, Ashley Warneke, and Ozden Sengul
Representations such as graphs, pictures, words, and equations play a crucial role in the pedagogy of introductory physics.  Activities such as labs and tutorials often require students to analyze and produce these representations.  We investigate the use of representations in a variety of activities.  Specifically, we examine both labs and tutorials as well as both evidence-based and non-evidence-based activities.  We define evidence-based activities as those that have been connected with positive learning outcomes in published research articles.  Our evidenced-based activities are inspired by physics education research, while our non-evidence-based activities are more traditional.  We compare and contrast the use of representations among these types of activities.  We investigate several uses of representations, including representations produced by the student; representations provided by the activity; and representations that the student re-examines at a later point in the activity.
