Plausibility: Is There a Place for It in Chemistry Teaching?
MacDonald, J. J.
School Science Review, v72 n261 p69-75 Jun 1991
Some of the persistent misinformation offered to secondary students while studying chemistry is discussed. A few cases where plausibility, knowingly or otherwise, has been offered to students instead of the accurate explanation are described. Concepts of charge, current, the mole, amount, rates, activation energy, sign convention in voltaic cells, and discharge of chloride ion are included in discussion. (KR)
