This response is often interpreted as an alternative conception of temperature. Another example relates to children’s conceptions of angle. Noss (1987) presented children with two identical angles, one of which had ‘longer arms’ than the other. They found that many children between the ages of ten and fifteen argued that ‘the angle with the longer arm is bigger’.

Such conceptions cover a wide range of subject areas. Most of this research has been content-specific and aimed for detailed descriptions of particular alternative concepts. Yet, there is evidence that students tend to respond inconsistently to tasks related to the very same mathematical or scientific concepts (Clough and Driver, 1986; Nunes, Schliemann and Carraher, 1993; Tirosh, 1990). This constitutes a challenge to the alternative conception paradigm. Through our work in mathematics and science education, we have observed that students react in a similar way to a wide variety of conceptually nonrelated problems which share some external, common features.
