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…

Chua, Kah-Eng; Karpudewan, Mageswary – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2017
Attitude towards learning science is a well-researched domain for more than four decades. Globally, studies on attitude still stay relevant following the decline in enrollment in science-related studies across many levels. Particularly, emergent of new sciences in this century calls for a shift in the content included in school science, to be more…
