03 Episodic Conceptualisation – A Possible Source Of Alternative Conception About ‘Kinetic Energy’ And ‘Work’

‘Kinetic Energy’ and ‘Work’ in the textbook as well as in the classroom by the teacher is likely to generate in the minds of the pupils two isolated, mutually independent cognitive structures. It is conjectured that any task, which demands conceptual and/or mathematical correlation between these two concepts, is likely to bring to the fore pupils’ alternative conceptions that are reflections of ‘Episodic Conceptualisation’.
