Evidence-Based Approaches to Improving Chemical Equilibrium Instruction
Davenport, Jodi L.; Leinhardt, Gaea; Greeno, James; Koedinger, Kenneth; Klahr, David; Karabinos, Michael; Yaron, David J.
Journal of Chemical Education, v91 n10 p1517-1525 Oct 2014
Two suggestions for instruction in chemical equilibrium are presented, along with the evidence that supports these suggestions. The first is to use diagrams to connect chemical reactions to the effects of reactions on concentrations. The second is the use of the majority and minority species (M&M) strategy to analyze chemical equilibrium systems. Two studies are presented in support of these suggestions.
