Learning conversions in science: The case of vocational students in the UK

By Anne Butterfield, Rosamund Sutherland and Susan Molyneux‐Hodgson

Abstract

The paper describes two aspects of a research project that focused on vocational science students. The paper begins with a general description of vocational science in the UK, to put the work in context. It then outlines an analysis of the ways in which these students approach problems involving converting between units of measurement. Finally the development and evaluation of computer‐based activities designed to support students in learning about unit conversion are described
