Download (1128Kb)


    Diploma Thesis presents the results of a research about French and English primary school pupils’ ideas about pressure and related content. The results indicate misconceptions about pressure which are developed by children and pupils. In Diploma Thesis, I focused mainly on conceptions about the air, air pressure and hydrostatic pressure. Further I analysed textbooks for Science and Technology in 5th grade of primary school and also textbooks for Physics in 8th and 9th grade of primary school. I checked if learning objectives stated in the curriculum are evident and fully taken into account. I also checked if explanations and interpretations predict misconceptions of children and pupils, revealed in research. I highlighted the relevant explanations and proposed improvements in cases of deficiencies. My improvements offer to strengthen appropriate images related to everyday life. Pupils gain experience with pressure outside of the school in everyday life but many times they are not aware of it.
