King, Nicola; Van der Touw, Thomas; Spowart, Lucy; Lawlor, Craig – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
There has been an increasing movement towards the introduction of inquiry based learning in undergraduate physiology laboratories. Students can however find this challenging when there is a sudden transition from traditional didactic practicals to full inquiry based activities. One reason for this could be the students' perceptions about the…

Berman, Abraham; Shvartsman, Ludmila – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
In this paper we describe an experiment in a linear algebra course. The aim of the experiment was to promote the students' understanding of the studied concepts focusing on their definitions. It seems to be a given that students should understand concepts' definitions before working substantially with them. Unfortunately, in many cases they do…
