Effective reasoning about electric circuits requires a solid understanding of voltage and potential. However, most students fail to correctly analyze electric circuits as they tend to reason exclusively with current and resistance. To address these difficulties, a new curriculum based on the electron gas model was developed and empirically evaluated in a study with 790 students from Frankfurt, Germany. The study follows a pretest-posttest-control-group design and uses a recognized two-tierdoi:10.1119/perc.2017.pr.012 fatcat:y5zsyh5c4jda3op6k2gs4tcm3i
