LE RÔLE DES VARIABLES À L’ENSEIGNEMENT EXPÉRIMENTAL EN SCIENCES / THE ROLE OF VARIABLES IN THE TEACHING SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS

Charilaos Voutsinos

Abstract


Dans cet article est présenté un spectre des remarques synthétiques par rapport au rôle des variables dans l’enseignement expérimental en sciences. Au début, nous discutons des aspects importants et pertinents de la gestion des variables dans les expériences comme le changement d’une seule variable et la construction des tableaux. En plus nous nous référons aux situations expérimentales complexes, aux erreurs, aux attitudes et à la séparation des variables.  

In this article is presented a spectrum of the synthetic comments related to the role of the variables in the teaching science experiments. At the beginning we discuss important and critical aspects of manipulating variables in experiments as the change in one variable and the construction of the tables. In addition we refer to complex experimental situations, errors, attitudes and the separation of variables.
