Middle grade students reasoning about temporary magnetism
written by Tamara G. Young, Lauren A. Barth-Cohen, Sarah K. Braden, and Sara Gailey
Magnetism is a significant topic in physics and student reasoning about magnetism is of interest to PER. Temporary magnetism is encountered during scientific inquiry, and pervasive in school physics, despite it typically not being an explicit part of the curriculum. We examine how middle grade students reason with this complex topic, and findings demonstrate that students' reasoning about different facets of this topic reflect that complexity.
