The Effectiveness of Problem – Based learning Strategy in the Acquisition of Scientific Concepts in Physics and the Development of science operations among the Ninth Grade Female Students (Published)

The purpose of this study is to design the unit of the mechanics and its effect on substances among the ninth grade female students in Jordan depending on problem – based learning strategy. The study also aimed at identifying the problem – based learning strategy as well as highlighting the applied importance of physics in the students’ daily life in addition to specifying the effect of the problem – based learning strategy in the student’s acquisition of scientific concepts in physics and development of their science operation. The study produced a set of results and recommendations the most significant of which were that there is an effect of the problem based learning strategy in the ninth grade students’ acquisition of the scientific concepts in physics, and that there is an impact of the problem – based learning strategy in the development of science operations in physics among the ninth grade students. The researcher recommends to construct and design the units of the scientific subjects by means of modern learning strategies like the problem – based learning strategy to facilitate the learning process by male and female students

Keywords: Problem-Based Learning, science operations development, scientific concepts, the mechanics.

The Effectiveness of Marzano’s Dimensions of Learning Model in the Tenth Grade Students Acquisition of Scientific concepts in science and the Development of critical Thinking skills and their Attitude towards Science (Published)

The purpose of this study is to design the light module for the tenth grade students is Jordan depending on Marzano’s Dimensions of Learning Model. It also aimed at identifying the effectiveness of Marzano’s Dimensions of Learning Model in teaching the light module in the development of scientific concepts acquisition with the tenth grade students as well as identifying the effectiveness of Marzano’s Dimensions of Learning Model in teaching the light module in the development of critical thinking skill among the tenth grade students. The researcher selected the study sample from the tenth grade female students in Mafraq Directorate of Education. The study produced a number of results and recommendations the most prominent of which are: There is a statistically significant effect for Marzano’s Dimensions of Learning Model in the acquisition of the tenth grade students to scientific concepts in the subject of science, and that there is a statistically significant effect for Marzano’s Dimensions of Learning Model in the development of critical thinking skills and the students’ attitudes toward science. In addition, the researcher recommends the necessity of holding training and educational courses for the basic stage teachers that explain the importance of Marzano’s learning model and how to stimulate the students to learn through the available strategies that suit the surrounding environment of their schools.
