Many introductory calculus-based physics students have difficulties when solving physics problems involving calculus. This study investigates students' retention and transfer from calculus to physics. While retention is the ability to recall your knowledge at a later point in time, transfer of learning is defined as the ability to apply what one has learned in one situation to a different situation.2.3.2. Physics Problem Solving 22.214.171.124. Definition of a Physics Problem Any investigation of problem solving needs a clear definition of what constitutes a problem. According to Newell and Simon (1972), a problem is defined as a situationanbsp;...
