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

This quantity deals a serious exam of quite a few conceptual ways to educating and studying chemistry within the tuition school room. providing updated study and thought and that includes contributions via revered lecturers on a number of continents, it explores methods of constructing wisdom significant and appropriate to scholars in addition to recommendations for successfully speaking the middle suggestions crucial for constructing a powerful knowing of the subject.

Structured in 3 sections, the contents deal first with educating and studying chemistry, discussing common matters and pedagogical suggestions utilizing macro, sub-micro and symbolic representations of chemical thoughts. Researchers additionally describe new and effective instructing ideas. the second one part examines particular methods that foster studying with knowing, targeting thoughts similar to cooperative studying, displays, laboratory actions, multimedia simulations and role-playing in forensic chemistry periods. the ultimate a part of the e-book info learner-centered energetic chemistry studying tools, energetic computer-aided studying and trainee chemistry academics` use of student-centered studying in the course of their pre-service schooling. complete and hugely suitable, this new book makes an important contribution to the ongoing activity of constructing chemistry sessions attractive and effective.
