Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine pre-service teachers’ attitudes toward use of Vee
diagrams in general physics laboratory. The sample of the study consists of 29 (16 girls and
13 boys) freshmen students enrolling to elementary school science education program at one
of the universities in Turkey. To gather the data of the study “Attitude Test toward the Use of
Vee Diagram” consisting of 18 Likert type questions and “Open-Ended Questionnaire about
the Use of Vee Diagram” including 8 open-ended questions are administered after laboratory
applications with Vee diagrams. The data from both the quantitative and qualitative part of
the study revealed that pre-service teachers have positive attitudes toward the use of vee
diagrams in physics laboratory.
