This paper describes an investigation into students’ and adults’ understanding of a simple thermal system by conducting interviews that explored the constructs and explanatory ideas used by children and adults in interpreting the outcome of a heating experiment. Researchers found that many interviewees' reasoning about heat phenomena used an elementary 'on=hot/off=cold' principle. Some implications of these findings for the teaching of heat and temperature are discussed.
