Abstract: Conceptual understanding of physics is based on understanding what the key concepts are and how they are related. In learning and teaching connections which tie concepts to each other give direction of progress - there is a flux of information. We discuss here how such ordering of concepts can be made visible by using concept maps and how the maps can be used in analysing the students’ views and ideas about the inherent logic of the relatedness of concepts. The approach discussed here is informed by the recent cognitively oriented ideas of knowledge organization concentrating on simple knowledge-organization patterns and how they form the basis of more complex concept networks. The results show that even in well connected maps there can be abrupt changes in the information flux in the way knowledge is passed from the initial levels to the final levels. This suggests that handling the information content is very demanding and perhaps a very difficult skill for a teacher student to mast er. (More)
