LEARNERS’ BELIEFS & CONCEPTIONS ABOUT THE ROLE OF MATHEMATICS IN PHYSICS

ABSTRACTMathematics is an essential part of what we call physics. It plays an important role in physics research as well as in learning physics. It can be a useful tool or a barrier too high to overcome for some of our students. Only recently this aspect of learning physics has been given more attention. The study presented here makes a contribution to this field of research by providing a first view on students’ conceptions about the role of mathematics in (learning) physics. These beliefs...
