AbstractThis paper reports results of an exploratory study of learning the concepts of force and energy, students of engineeringconducted with freshmen. Participated in this study 125 students in a general physics course at the University of LaFrontera, Chile. The research is based on the theory of conceptual fields Vergnaud, adopted as a theoretical reference forthe study of significant learning processes in physics. The results described features of the conceptualization andunderstanding of meanings of these concepts at two different times, at the beginning and end of the course. These resultsallow us to explore the progress of students in learning and mastering this conceptual field.
