Abstract: This classroom study, involving 149 high school students, investigates structure, coherence and frequencies of misconceptions students have while learning diffusion via a simulation. The results show that misconceptions are not random ideas, but rather have underlying structures and can be systematically characterized by the PAIR-C framework, which aims to help students understand the nature of emergent processes embedded in their school curricula. The article concludes with a discussion of implications to foster deeper understanding of misconceptions from a systematic, structured perspective.
