Abstract

COLLAZOS, Héctor F.  and  CASTRILLON, Omar D.. Methodology for the Teaching of Oscillatory Motion using Computer Simulation. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2019, vol.30, n.4, pp.165-180. ISSN 0718-0764.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642019000400165.

A teaching methodology was designed using computer simulation to analyze its impact on student´s satisfaction level with the teaching of physical phenomena. Five simulations on oscillatory movement were created using the GeoGebra software, and a questionnaire was designed to motivate the autonomous exploration of the simulations. In the control group the subjects were oriented in a traditional way and in the experimental group the traditional methodology was combined with the use of the simulations. A Likert test was applied to measure the satisfaction level before and after the application of the methodology. In the responses to the Likert test, a percentage variation of the level of satisfaction was presented, which for the control group ranges between -5.0% and 3.6%, and for the experimental group between 1.3% and 12%. Based on the results it is concluded that the methodology assisted by computer simulations allows to obtain a positive variation in the satisfaction level, greater than that which uses the traditional methodology.

Keywords : computer simulation; satisfaction level; teaching methodology; oscillatory movement.
