What Makes Science Hard? A Karplus Lecture
Journal of Science Education and Technology Volume 2, Number 1, ISSN 1059-0145
Many students are deterred from science because of the way science courses are packaged. To find out what makes science hard for intelligent students, the author employed nonscience faculty and graduate students as surrogate students in science. Their responses to the sequence of the units, demonstrations, homework assignments, examinations, and the pace and structure of the courses is reported. (Author/PR)
