Abstract : This study investigated 41 Thai Grade 9 students’ understanding about the motion of the Sun, Moon, and stars within their social and cultural context. Students’  understanding was explored using a survey tool titled Students’ understanding about Celestial Motion within their Social and Cultural context Questionnaire (SCMSCQ). This questionnaire gave students the opportunity to express their ideas about celestial motion within their social and cultural context. The study reveals some interesting features of student understanding, and particularly their difficulty in perceiving the relationship between the study of celestial motion and their social and cultural context. Many students used descriptions from their everyday observations of the daily apparent motion of the Sun, Moon and stars, rather than scientific explanations to answer questions which referred to the relationship between social and cultural contexts and celestial motion. This study has implications for the development of teaching sociocultural approach in Thailand. 

Keywords : celestial motion, social and cultural context, student understanding
