Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by Richard Zajchowski and Jack Martin
This article reports the results of a research study which investigated the extent to which differences in problem-solving performance of stronger and weaker novices in physics arise from differences in amount of domain knowledge, in how domain knowledge is organized, and in the strategic application of domain knowledge. Differences were observed in how 10 university physics students solved easy and difficult problems involving Newton's second law.
