  6. Measurement and uncertainty in the first-year physics laboratory: towards probing students" conceptual understanding of the mean
    Majiet, Nuraan, 2021-01-15T09:53:10Z, University of Cape Town
    Physics is about sense-making. The world we live in and experience through our sensory modalities is highly complex. In order to make sense of this complexity we reduce the experiences to a more simplified form. The way in which this is achieved is through modelling. Physics consists of both theory ...
