Abstract: 
This paper reports on the understanding of scientific concepts of a group
of 45 non-graduate teachers from 10 randomly selected schools in
Singapore. The data was obtained from an “interview-about-situations”
technique, adapted from Osborne and Gilbert (1980). The findings show
many teachers do not have accepted scientific views and brings into
question the conceptual level at which primary school teachers need to
understand concepts in order to convey them correctly when they teach.
