Visualizing Complexity in Science Classroom Learning Environments
Theory supports the utility of multiple representations as enhancing flexible thought in complex domains, including science teaching, science learning, and scientific problem solving. The Multiple Representation Model (MRM), a theoretical model developed for this study, and the Science Classroom Observation Protocol (SCOPS), an instrument developed for use in teaching and research settings, are used to describe complex science learning environments in a number of contexts. Differences in the practices and patterns of science teachers and learners are discussed.
