Abstract

The goal of this research study was to ascertain whether MBL experiments can be used to support student integration of multiple representations of scientific phenomena that result in student-generated conceptions which resemble scientific conceptions rather than misconceptions. We found that the majority of students who were successful in drawing scientifically correct conceptions were also able to correctly interpret the key points on the graph of a titration curve. Conversely, those with misconceptions were not successful in either graph interpretation or graph-based calculations. This study establishes the need to complement MBL technology with interactive multimedia simulations that represent the phenomenon being studied with MBL in the laboratory.
