Abstract Title: An epistemic game for answer making
Abstract: Researchers on physics problem solving have introduced six epistemic games to describe the organizational structures of locally coherent resources. We find a new epistemic game which is identified based on interviews to validate a survey focusing on students' understanding of Archimedes' Principle and Pascal's Law. In this poster, we indicate how students generate their answers using this game in detail and discuss implications for instruction.
