Abstract [en]

This paper investigates changes in upper secondary students´ conceptions of relationships between prices charged to consumers and the environmental implications of production, distribution and consumption of goods and services. The research identifies the fragmentary nature of students´ every-day reasoning in relation to productivity, consumers´ preferences and externalities, here defined as harmful side effects. It also identifies characteristics of partial conceptions, which we interpret as showing students´ conceptions in a process of change towards a more scientific understanding of relationships between price and environmental impacts.
