The study results revealed a low level of understanding of the nature of science in physics teachers and the lack of significant differences in understanding the level of the nature of science as a whole due to the variable of teaching experience, and also found statistically significant differences in the assumptions of science and for the longest teaching experience. the study also showed statistically significant differences in determining the level of understanding of the nature of science, due to the academic qualification and in favor of a higher qualification.
