Reflections on the Proceedings from HPSST Conferences: A Profile of Papers on Chemistry Education.
Proceedings from the first three History and Philosophy of Science and Science Teaching Conferences are examined to identify the profile of papers in science content areas. Those papers with a chemistry education emphasis are investigated more closely. Results indicate that papers with physics content dominate. Chemistry and biology content were addressed at about the same frequency. The chemistry topics covered in the papers include air pressure, equilibrium, atomic theory, and periodicity. Student cognition and language in science are the least studied areas among those covered while sociology of chemistry and teacher cognition are examples of domains that have not been addressed.
