Cognitive Diagnostic Assessment of Students' Responses: An Example from Energy and Momentum Concepts

Dega, Bekele Gashe – European Journal of Physics Education, 2019

Students' responses to energy & momentum (EM) concepts were investigated. EM concepts are fundamental and crosscutting in physics. A standardized Energy and Momentum Conceptual Survey (EMCS) test were used to collect quantitative data from 108 first year science students enrolled in a university in Ethiopia. Concentration analysis was used to…

Marušic, Mirko; Sliško, Josip – European Journal of Physics Education, 2017

In this research, we gave to technical university students (N=50) and high school students (N=75) a verbally described situation of a partially defined physics problem. The task for the both groups of the students was to generate drawings of how they imagined the situation that the problem referred to. A fully abstract drawing was generated by 48%…

Stiles-Clarke, Laura; MacLeod, Katarin – European Journal of Physics Education, 2016

For the past 40 years, there has been apprehension in North American society, and particularly in the scientific community, concerning the decline of interest and enrollment in science degree programs at the post-secondary level. This trend has proven very difficult to reverse. The purpose of this study was to explore why students at an Atlantic…

Mešic, Vanes; Mahmutovic, Sabaheta; Hasovic, Elvedin; Erceg, Nataša – European Journal of Physics Education, 2016

Earlier research has found that it is useful to distinguish situations in which students construct external representations on their own from situations in which they are expected to interpret already provided external representations. One type of representations that is particularly important for teaching mechanics is the free-body diagram. In…

Dean, Kevin; Mathew, Jyothi – European Journal of Physics Education, 2016

A theoretical analysis is presented, showing the derivations of seven different linearization equations for the conical pendulum period "T", as a function of radial and angular parameters. Experimental data obtained over a large range of fixed conical pendulum lengths (0.435 m-2.130 m) are plotted with the theoretical lines and…

Yildiz, Ali – European Journal of Physics Education, 2015

The purpose of this study is to discuss a wrong statement written about dimensional analysis in a physics text book prepared for the students who are studying in science, engineering and teaching undergraduate programs at universities and who have to take compulsory physics courses, to analyse the use of the text book including the wrong…

Restricted Closed Shell Hartree Fock Roothaan Matrix Method Applied to Helium Atom Using Mathematica

Acosta, César R.; Tapia, J. Alejandro; Cab, César – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014

Slater type orbitals were used to construct the overlap and the Hamiltonian core matrices; we also found the values of the bi-electron repulsion integrals. The Hartree Fock Roothaan approximation process starts with setting an initial guess value for the elements of the density matrix; with these matrices we constructed the initial Fock matrix.…

Teodorescu, Raluca E.; Bennhold, Cornelius; Feldman, Gerald; Medsker, Larry – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014

We present the most recent steps undertaken to reform the introductory algebra-based course at The George Washington University. The reform sought to help students improve their problem-solving performance. Our pedagogy relies on didactic constructs such as the" GW-ACCESS problem-solving protocol," "instructional sequences" and…

Luchembe, Dennis; Chinyama, Kaumba; Jumbe, Jack – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014

The study was conducted to show the effectiveness of concept mapping as a teaching strategy to undergraduate students taking introductory physics course. A number of researchers have investigated the effectiveness of concept mapping on student academic achievement. The main focus of these studies have been on comparing the effectiveness of concept…

Bertel, Erminald – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013

Due to progress in nanotechnology high-quality quantum wires can nowadays be fabricated. The behavior of particles in one dimension differs significantly from that in three-dimensional (3D) systems, yet the physics of such low-dimensional systems is generally not very well represented in standard undergraduate or graduate curricula. For instance,…

Kuhn, Jochen; Vogt, Patrik – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013

New media technology becomes more and more important for our daily life as well as for teaching physics. Within the scope of our N.E.T. research project we develop experiments using New Media Experimental Tools (N.E.T.) in physics education and study their influence on students learning abilities. We want to present the possibilities e.g. of…

Sazonov, Sergey N. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013

The purpose of this article is to give the intelligible procedure for undergraduate students to grasp proof of the fact that the magnetic field outside the hollow superconducting sphere (superconducting shell) coincides with the field of a point magnetic dipole both when an uniform external magnetic field is applied as when a ferromagnetic sphere…

Sznitman, Josué; Stone, Howard A.; Smits, Alexander J.; Grotberg, James B. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013

Dimensional analysis is often a subject reserved for students of fluid mechanics. However, the principles of scaling and dimensional analysis are applicable to various physical problems, many of which can be introduced early on in a university physics curriculum. Here, we revisit one of the best-known examples from a first course in classic…

Garcia Trujillo, Luis Antonio; Ramirez Díaz, Mario H.; Rodriguez Castillo, Mario – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013

Solving the position of a simple pendulum at any time is apparently one of the most simple and basic problems to solve in high school and college physics courses. However, because of this apparent simplicity, teachers and physics texts often assume that the solution is immediate without pausing to reflect on the problem formulation or verifying…
