Didactics of Physics

Organisation profile

The research group 'Didactics of Physics' investigates subject specific issues related to the teaching of physics at all levels. The group is particularly interested in learning difficulties and teaching strategies associated with the intrinsic mathematical character of physics. Furthermore, a strong emphasis is given to historical and epistemological investigations of the interplay between physics and mathematics.
