By Keith S. Taber (auth.), Iztok Devetak, Saša Aleksij Glažar (eds.)

This quantity bargains a severe exam of a number of conceptual techniques to educating and studying chemistry within the tuition lecture room. proposing up to date examine and conception and that includes contributions through revered teachers on a number of continents, it explores methods of creating wisdom significant and correct to scholars in addition to thoughts for successfully speaking the center strategies crucial for constructing a powerful realizing of the subject.

Structured in 3 sections, the contents deal first with educating and studying chemistry, discussing basic concerns and pedagogical thoughts utilizing macro, sub-micro and symbolic representations of chemical recommendations. Researchers additionally describe new and effective instructing innovations. the second one part examines particular methods that foster studying with figuring out, targeting concepts reminiscent of cooperative studying, shows, laboratory actions, multimedia simulations and role-playing in forensic chemistry sessions. the ultimate a part of the booklet information learner-centered energetic chemistry studying tools, lively computer-aided studying and trainee chemistry lecturers` use of student-centered studying in the course of their pre-service schooling. entire and hugely proper, this new ebook makes an important contribution to the ongoing activity of creating chemistry periods attractive and effective.

She had studied science to Year 10 level where she was in the non-chemistry group. In the first interview, Leanne applies macroscopic properties to the sub-microscopic nature of matter, displaying a poor modelling ability. There is obvious confusion between the representational nature and the reality of the sub-microscopic level. She was unable to understand the representational nature of the diagrams of various atoms, and molecules, as is shown in the following excerpts. : If I gave you a sample of copper for example.

Chittleborough Conclusion Most significant to the learning of chemistry is the ontological framework that the three levels of chemical representation of matter provide for the learner and the teacher. By providing the learner with basic criteria on which to understand the explanatory tools commonly used in chemistry, then the understanding of the chemical content may be improved. Armed with this understanding, the learner can develop a way of thinking about chemical phenomena—described as the chemical epistemology—an understanding of the knowledge of how chemical ideas are built and an understanding of the way of knowing about chemical processes.
