Önder, Fatih; Silay, Ilhan – European Journal of Physics Education, 2015
This research aims to determine the effectiveness of cooperative groups, organized according to learning styles, on students' physics success. The research was designed according to non-equivalent control group design. In the experimental group, the students were assigned into cooperative groups heterogeneously according to their learning styles…

Ince, Elif; Acar, Yavuz; Temur, Senem – European Journal of Physics Education, 2015
Physics education through physics toys is quite a popular method in foreign countries yet it is still not applied in our country. The aim of this study is to investigation of physics toys' effectiveness of students' physics principles explanation and their attitude towards physics toys. Selected physics toys include subjects of mechanic,…

Singh, Satya Pal – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
This paper presents a brief review of Ising's work done in 1925 for one dimensional spin chain with periodic boundary condition. Ising observed that no phase transition occurred at finite temperature in one dimension. He erroneously generalized his views in higher dimensions but that was not true. In 1941 Kramer and Wannier obtained…

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.…

Allaire-Duquette, Geneviève; Charland, Patrick; Riopel, Martin – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
In physics, women find contexts concerning human biology, medical applications, or natural phenomena highly relevant (Hoffmann, 2002), and the rareness or absence of these in physics curricula may make it more difficult for women to develop and maintain their interest in physics. To date, research in physics education addressing student's…

Bogacz, Bogdan F.; Pedziwiatr, Antoni T. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
A simple and fast experimental method of determining absolute zero temperature is presented. Air gas thermometer coupled with pressure sensor and data acquisition system COACH is applied in a wide range of temperature. By constructing a pressure vs temperature plot for air under constant volume it is possible to obtain--by extrapolation to zero…

Shivalingaswamy, T.; Rashmi, P. E. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
The accurate measurement of speed of light is of great importance in understanding various concepts in Physics in particular and science in general. In Physics we come across various concepts and applications in which high degree of accuracy of speed of light becomes important. In this article we discuss the various attempts made to determine the…

Miryala, Santosh; Koblischka, M. R. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
The construction and operation of a prototype high-"Tc" superconducting train model is presented. The train is levitated by a melt-processed GdBa[subscript 2]Cu[subscript 3]O[subscript x] (Gd-123) superconducting material over a magnetic rail (track). The oval shaped track is constructed in S-N-S or PM3N configuration arranged on an iron…

Montecinos, Alicia M. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
A partially unusual behaviour was found among 14 sophomore students of civil engineering who took a pre test for a free fall laboratory session, in the context of a general mechanics course. An analysis contemplating mathematics models and physics models consistency was made. In all cases, the students presented evidence favoring a correct free…

Forjan, Matej; Sliško, Josip – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
This article presents the results of an analysis of three Slovenian textbooks for high school physics, from the point of view of simplifications and idealizations in the field of mechanics. In modeling of physical systems, making simplifications and idealizations is important, since one ignores minor effects and focuses on the most important…

Kariper, I. Afsin – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
Most of countries are trying to develop their education systems. Since the new generations are their future, they want to give a good education. So they have the biggest objective of their educational system to educate modern, productive responsible, qualified and educated people who also take side of solutions instead of problems. The educated…

Stamenkovski, Sasha; Zajkov, Oliver – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
This research is conducted among 65 seventh graders (12-14 years old) who attend introductory course on physics. Tests and interviews are used to trace the roots of the students' misconceptions about mass. Results from the research reveal serious weaknesses in students' understanding of concept of mass, and its confusion with concepts of density…

MacLeod, Katarin – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
Science, Technology, Society and Environment (STSE) education has received attention in educational research, policy, and science curricula development, yet less advancement has been made in moving theory into practice. There are many examples of STSE-based teaching in science at the elementary and secondary levels, yet little has focused…

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…

Ajredini, Fadil; Izairi, Neset; Zajkov, Oliver – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
This research investigates the influence of computer simulations (virtual experiments) on one hand and real experiments on the other hand on the conceptual understanding of electrical charging. The investigated sample consists of students in the second year (10th grade) of three gymnasiums in Macedonia. There were two experimental groups and one…
