Reactions and Reason, An Introductory Chemistry Module. [Student's Text and Teacher's Guide.]
Atkinson, Gordon; Heikkinen, Henry
Described are the student's text and teacher's guide of the first module for secondary schools prepared for the Interdisciplinary Approaches to Chemistry (IAC) project. The main approach to teaching is to present chemistry as a dynamic field of knowledge concerning phenomena in the daily life of every individual. This module, the first in a series of seven, provides experiences about the basic concepts, skills, and processes used in the chemical study of objects. The concepts described in the module are: mixture and pure substances, chemical and physical properties, formulas, equations and nomenclature, elements and compounds, mole concept and stoichiometry, solutions, state of matter, energy and kinetic molecular theory, reactions, atomic structure, bonding, and molecular shapes. Laboratory experiments, problems, and other exercises are integrated in the student's text. The teacher's guide contains a description of objectives for each chapter. These objectives are broken down into concept-centered, attitude-centered, and skill-centered objectives. Detailed and helpful hints are provided for each chapter. Optional activities and other supplementary instructions are provided where appropriate. The teacher's guide also contains a sample of evaluation questions which go beyond recall of facts. (PS)
