Research, Literature, and Current News Articles on Learning

David Hammer: Two Approaches to Learning Physics DUE BY 8:00:00 PM Monday September 11.

David Hammer published his paper Two Approaches to Learning Physics in The Physics Teacher in December of 1989. Please read the paper. Some of the physics concepts might not make sense yet, that is OK- we are going to learn them! On your own, please reflect on what you think is the message of this article. Who do you think is Hammer's intended audience? Why did he choose to publish this study? Please reflect in the Google Classroom assignment document. We will discuss your reactions in class on Tuesday (P 1) or Wednesday (P 3).
