dc.description.abstract This study has examined the effectiveness of concept mapping on physics achievement of freshmen students at Riyadh Teachers College. Six concept maps covering six physics units to be taught to the experimental group were constructed. In addition, two equivalent tests (pretest and posttest) were developed. The sample chosen for this study consisted of two groups (experimental and control), the size if each group was 21 students. The experimental group received instruction using Concept Mapping Strategy, while the control group received instruction through the lecturing approach. Initially all students in both groups were protested, after six weeks of Instruction all students in both groups were protested. The statistical analysis has revealed that the achievement of the experimental group was significantly higher than the achievement of the control group. Based on results of this study, the researcher concluded that concept mapping approach was an effective teaching strategy in teaching physics to university students. The analysis was also indicated that concept mapping strategy worked positively for both, higher and lower achievers. Some recommendations were provided at the end of the study. en_US
