Phelps, Amy J.
Journal of Chemical Education, v73 n4 p301-04 Apr 1996
Evaluates an instructional method in general chemistry that attempts to bridge the gap between algorithmic problem-solving abilities and conceptual understanding of chemistry students and emphasizes conceptual problem solving in the initial phase of a concept. Concludes that using a conceptual focus for the chemistry courses had many positive results in courses for both science majors and nonmajors. (JRH)
