Balukovic, Jasmina; Slisko, Josip – European Journal of Physics Education, 2018
A recent textbook research, carried out on a sample of 20 American physics textbooks, shows that the authors mainly keep the old definition of weight. According to that definition, the weight of a body is the gravitational force on the body. In such a conceptual frame, the objects in the spaceship are "apparently weightless" because they…

Slisko, Josip – European Journal of Physics Education, 2017
This study is an initial exploration of students' abilities to analyze critically authenticity of physics problems, carried out with Spanish translation of the eight Edition of popular physics textbook "Fundamentals of Physics", written by Halliday, Resnick and Walker. Students (N = 34) involved in the study were those of applied physics…

Slisko, Josip; Cruz, Adrian Corona – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013
There is a general agreement that critical thinking is an important element of 21st century skills. Although critical thinking is a very complex and controversial conception, many would accept that recognition and evaluation of assumptions is a basic critical-thinking process. When students use simple mathematical model to reason quantitatively…

Méndez Coca, David; Slisko, Josip – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013
Many physics professors have difficulties to know and assess in real time the learning of the students in their courses. Nevertheless, today, with Internet and the new technology devices that the students use every day, like smartphones, such tasks can be carried out relatively easy. The professor pose a few questions in "Socrative," the…

Slisko, Josip; Hadzibegovic, Zalkida – European Journal of Physics Education, 2011
Since long time ago, many authors advocated for more presence of physics history in physics teaching and learning in order to give students a better vision of the "nature of science", in other words, to let them learn not only established physics knowledge but also the ways of how physicists managed to get that knowledge. Generally,…

Balukovic, Jasmina; Slisko, Josip; Hadzibegovic, Zalkida – European Journal of Physics Education, 2011
Since 2003, international project PISA evaluates 15-year old students in solving problems that include "decision taking", "analysis and design of systems" and "trouble-shooting". This article presents the results of a pilot research conducted with 215 students from first to fourth grade of a high school in Sarajevo…
