The Role of Model Building in Problem Solving and Conceptual Change
Interactive Learning Environments Volume 19, Number 3, ISSN 1049-4820
This study examines the effects of the activity of building systems models for school-based problems on problem solving and on conceptual change in elementary science classes. During a unit on the water cycle in an Asian elementary school, students constructed systems models of the water cycle. We found that representing ill-structured problems as system models improves problem solving as well as creating beneficial conceptual change related to the topic. (Contains 7 figures and 2 tables.)
