Despite the best efforts of scientists to keep meanings fixed and precise, the meaning of what is written and said in science (as in any aspect of human life) changes over time: public meanings change over historical time, and private understandings change over the lifetime of an individual. It is therefore important to uncover how children use words. We may accuse them of muddled thinking, when it is simply that they are using words differently from us. As teachers, we need to listen carefully to children as they use words, and watch out, especially from the context of what they say, for understanding conveyed through an underdeveloped and possibly inadequate vocabulary.

B) About the same: here people may realise that you cannot destroy matter, so what goes in must come out, but they forget that the burning process involves combining fuel and air. 42 chapter 5 Children’s ideas of the world (c) Much heavier: these are the people who realise the importance of oxygen. Since oxygen atoms are much more massive than hydrogen, and a little more massive than carbon, the increase in mass of the exhaust gases over the original hydrocarbon fuel is significant – the exhaust gases have more than four times the mass of the petrol.

Less easy, but worth exploring, is the difference between -parent and -lucent (meaning ‘see’ and ‘light’). What other words do they know containing these roots? Apparent, appear, to peer into the gloom are all linked with seeing; and lucid, Lucifer link with clear and light. By contrast, the Greek word for light is photos, which gives us words such as photograph and photosynthesis. Many scientific words have a classical origin, and most teachers point this out for their pupils. 1 lists a few of them.
