Introductory physics: an attempt to change attitudes
Proceedings Frontiers in Education 1997 27th Annual Conference. Teaching and Learning in an Era of Change
We discuss attempts to change the attitude of students towards an Electricity and Magnetism class taken by Engineering majors in the required Introductory Physics sequence. Class size is large (150 to 200 students) leading to little personal interaction. Testing has, in the past, been based on multiple choice problems which may be graded efficiently. We have demonstrate that students do not solve these from the physics but rather develop strategies for selection of answers based on memorizeddoi:10.1109/fie.1997.644905 fatcat:ephvdshdpjcofbkserwca62vh4
