Abdullah, Helmi – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2018
One of the fundamental problems for the college students is not being able to solve the multi-concept physics problems. The reason is that the problem solving strategies is limited to known-asked strategy (traditional strategy).Though this strategy can only be used to solve the problems of mono-concept physics. Therefore, this research on the use…
