|Title:||Investigating the correlation between mathematical pre-knowledge and learning gains in service physics||Contributor(s):||Buick, James (author)||Publication Date:||2007||DOI:||10.1088/0143-0807/28/6/004||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1609||Abstract:||An investigation was undertaken into the relationship between the initial mathematics knowledge of students and their success in a service physics course aimed at science students who require an understanding of basic physics concepts but who are not studying for a physics major. An appropriate method for performing this investigation was developed, implemented and analysed. Results from a small, self-selected sample indicated a correlation between the initial mathematical knowledge of students and learning gains obtained during the course.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||European Journal of Physics, v.28, p. 1073-1080||Publisher:||Institute of Physics Publishing||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||0143-0807
