Although experiments are important activities that have led to the development of science, research has shown that for students school experiments are not very helpful in understanding science. For one reason, current experimental classes require students to do too much in a short time. In this study, we tried to repeat the same experimental subjects with different experimental method so that science gifted students could think more deeply about the same experimental subject. The subjects of the experiment were Newton's second law and the rolling motion experiment, and the first experimental method involved the use of a Microcomputer Based Laboratory (MBL) ultrasonic sensor, the last method involved an analysis of the camera's motion. The results of this study showed that the core error factors that students found in the experiments changed from minor to major factors. Students also identified the characteristics, the strengths and the weaknesses of each experimental device and recognized the value of the experiments. As a result, they seemed to reach a deeper understanding of the experimental subject. We think that the method proposed by this study could be used in an experimental class without much effort by the teachers.
