Poster 34: Liam Clancy – An Analysis of Cross-Cutting Concepts in a Claims-Evidence-Reasoning Focused Physics Course

Cross Cutting Concepts (CCCs) `help provide students with an organizational framework for connecting knowledge from the various disciplines into a coherent and scientifically based view of the world.’ My research investigated their use in an introductory physics lab class. I both critically analyzed the labs for their connection to the 3 point framework, and did coding analysis on student responses. In conclusion I argue that CCCs should be reclassified into primary and secondary concepts.
