Abstract [en]

Physics is the most ancient of sciences. Indeed are Swedish Secondary School Students interest for Physics low. The aspects that contribute to this poor interest in Physics among our students are very complex in their nature. In a way has Physics a scientific approach which is experienced by our students as inaccessible and this inaccessibility sustains students' lack of interest for reaching it. A closer examination of this issue shows what students' attitudes and interpretation about Physics in one of Sweden's Secondary School are. It turns out that out students have a huge amount of interesting ideas about how Physics could become a more reacheable and interesting discipline in secondary school education. It also turns out that the way of learning Physics is not a short one; it takes time to build up the scientific common sense that is necessary in Physics. Moreover, mathematical skills are the fundamental ingredients in discovering, learning and accepting Physics. It also shows that today's youth culture has a large influence in student's attitudes about Physics.
