Description:

A study was conducted to determine how 200 pre-service physical science teachers in South Africa and Namibia interpreted the word "model" in a physics context. Many interpreted the term as a physical construct rather than as an abstract idea. This confusion exacerbated difficulties with the interpretation of physical models for light.
