Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,In this segment the interviewer is using the phenomenon of salt dissolving in water to build upon the student's previous ideas about mixing substances together. This time the student sees one of the substances as "disappearing." Even though he says the mixture will still taste salty, which is evidence that there is salt in the water, he shows that he holds on to a belief that the salt has disappeared and is gone.
