Example text

Similarly, scientists often find that the sequence in which they have encountered their evidence influences their developing ideas. • The discussion each student group has about the evidence also influences the outcomes. Scientists, too, work in groups and confer about their evidence regularly. • Finally, unlike many school science experiences you may have had, real science proceeds to find answers where no previous answers exist. Similarly, the students in our example developed theories based on how they saw the evidence and what their own experiences told them.

13. the particles could be so light that gravity doesn’t push them down. 14. they are small enough to defy gravity. 15. if they fell they would leave a vacuum so they stay evenly dispersed. 16. gas particles can float. 17. air can float. 18. the particles are anti-gravity and won’t fall down. I gave out the sheet to the class and had to spend a few minutes on an unrelated administrative matter, so I told the students to start discussing the suggested answers themselves. ” “Poison! ” I found that as we discussed the answers, students were quite good at shooting down other people s ideas.

This was developed by a Monash University team for the Victorian department of education as a way of connecting teachers with known students’ views and offer pedagogical advice. gov. au/school/teachers/teachingresources/discipline/science/continuum/pages/level5. aspx (or just Google science continuum). Relevant to the issues raised above are The particle theory (level 5 –meaning years 7-8), Macroscopic versus microscopic properties and Movement of particles (both level 6 -meaning years 9-10) Accepted science What follows includes a number of points that are often not included in standard texts that teachers may rely on and which are important for teachers to understand in order to be able to discuss common student constructed meanings • Matter is made of particles that do not share the properties of the macroscopic material that that make up –ice particles do not turn into little liquid drops at 0C, cheese particles are not softer than stone particles, but rather are attracted and linked to each other in ways that make cheese much softer than stone.
