Identifying student resources for understanding linear momentum
written by Brynna Hansen, Lauren C. Bauman, Yohannes M. Abraham, Mikayla Valentin, and Amy D. Robertson
Much existing physics education research (PER) on student ideas about momentum focuses on the difficulties that students face when learning this topic. These difficulties are framed as obstacles for students to overcome in order to develop correct understandings of physics. Our research takes a resources-oriented approach to analyzing student responses to momentum questions, viewing student ideas as valuable and potentially productive for learning, over and above their correctness. Here, we highlight four conceptual resources that provide insight into students' ideas about momentum, which are the conservation resource, direction resource, collisions resource and properties resource. These resources are context-dependent and could be elicited and built on by instructors to support students in developing more complex and sophisticated understandings of physics.
