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.Future research question #2: Does assigning more word problems in calculus indeed help students develop problem solving skills in physics? It seems all of our students and faculty interviewees agree that using more semi- structured wordanbsp;...
