The Use of Analog Models by Students of Chemistry at Higher Education Level.
Ingham, Angela; Gilbert, John K.
International Journal of Science Education, v13 n2 p193-202 Apr-Jun 1991
The uses that chemistry students (undergraduates, postgraduate, and trainee teachers) make of analog models when relating equations to projects were identified. Although only a restricted use of such models were found, and for none of the reasons valued by practicing chemists, patterns were identified. The implications for chemical education at school and higher education levels are discussed. (Author/KR)
