This collaborative action research involving a supervisor and a studentteacher aims to assist 23 Form Four 16 years old students to overcome theirmisconceptions on the topic of forces inequilibrium state.
This study adopts the action research cycle: Identify-Plan-Act-Reflect.The pre-test results showed that students had problems in recognizing theforces.
Consequently, a teaching intervention was planned and carried out toimprove students’ ability to identify and recognize the forces that exist for anobject in the equilibrium state.
The teaching intervention emphasizes on thebasic characteristics of the force arrow namely the direction, magnitude, labelingand starting point of force.
The post test results showed that students’ability to draw the force arrows correctly had improved, with the exception ofidentifying the starting point of force.
The action research study managed toguide the student teacher to identify and help to overcome misconceptions ofher students.
