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…
