Misconceptions In Science

This resource is a booklet with theories why students have misconceptions, lists the most common in science, includes strategies for overcoming them, and quizzes for ascertaining main misconceptions in Forces, Electricity etc. It is research based and focuses on a constructivist approach based around CASE (Cognitive Acceleration Through Science Education).

I will be making some misconception specific resources in the next few weeks (Oct 2019), so please come back and check them out.
