A Study of the Impact of Constructivist Approach on Students Understanding the Concepts of Work, Energy and Power at Senior Secondary Level
Abstract: Teaching learning the concepts of work, energy and power can be made joyful, interesting and fruitful activity by adopting constructivist approach in which students are expected to be engaged in acquiring methods and processes that take care of learners curiosity and creativity particularly in relation to the learning environment. Teachers are expected to provide environment in which students interact meaningfully with academic materials/resources facilitating the teaching learning processes related with the concepts of work, energy and power. Present research study has been carried on students of two groups viz. experimental group and controlled group to investigate the impact of constructivist approach on their understanding the concepts of work, energy and power at senior secondary level. Analysis of the students responses clearly revealed a significant difference between students understanding of experimental and controlled groups about the concepts of work, energy and power.
Keywords: constructivist approach, concepts of work, energy & power, learning environment and teaching-learning process
