DORNELES, Pedro F.T.; ARAUJO, Ives S.  and  VEIT, Eliane A.. Computational modelling and simulation activities to help the meaningful learning of electricity basic concepts: part I - simple electric circuits. Rev. Bras. Ensino Fís. [online]. 2006, vol.28, n.4, pp.487-496. ISSN 1806-1117.

In this paper we analyze different student's conceptions and reasonings regarding basic concepts involved in simple electric circuits, that become obstacles for the learning, and present a product of a research work, that consists in a set of computational modeling and simulation activities, developed with the software Modellus, taking into account such difficulties to help students to surpass them.

Keywords : computational modelling; computational simulation; misconceptions; electric circuits; physics instruction.
