First year science university students come from a variety of teaching and learning cultures with a wide range of academic abilities. Moreover several studies have shown that student had been pre-exposed to misconceptions that are hard to change. These combining factors pose a daunting challenge for the instructor. Traditional mode of teaching in many cases is not suitable and may result in an increased drop out rate.
Developing an effective learning environment primarily depends on the instructor. Before embarking on a full teaching program, it is therefore useful to develop a teaching strategy that is suitable for the whole class. This study investigates how the prior knowledge of the students can be used to develop an effective teaching strategy.
