Physics Education
written by Michael Watts and A. Zylbersztajn
Describes a study which determined the prevalence of the non-Newtonian view among students (N=125) and to what extent their physics teachers (N=5) were aware of this prevalence. Includes methods used and summaries of typical responses to a paper-pencil, multiple-choice format questionnaire focusing on aspects related to force.
