Abstract

Are all that children surmise from their day-to-day experiences, actual scientific truth? In this article, we discuss three examples that show how children have such 'prior mental models' before they enter classrooms, and how these could persist, even into adulthood. We also discuss potential ways to help learners replace these 'prior mental models' with correct scientific models.
