A Hands-On Activity to Build Mastery of Intermolecular Forces and Its Impacts on Student Learning
Bruck, Laura B.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v45 n4 Mar 2016
The intermolecular forces activity presented in this article is designed to foster concept-building through students' use of concrete, manipulative objects, and it was developed to be pedagogically sound. Data analysis via pre- and posttesting and subsequent exam questions indicated that students who had the opportunity to participate in the activity were better able to identify and apply intermolecular forces both immediately after completion of the activity and also at the end of the semester.
