Description:

This article discusses the research into three questions aimed at improving instruction: 1. What is involved in understanding physics? 2. What do students bring to physics classes? 3. How do they respond to what they are taught? The authors discuss the physics education research community's findings with emphasis on two elements students need to master in order to become expert solvers of complex problems: concepts and appropriate cognitive attitudes.
