Bring Back Equivalent Weight--If You Want the Kids To "Think"!
Laing, Michael
Journal of Chemical Education, v73 n11 p1007-12 Nov 1996
States that science courses present modern derived knowledge to be learned and applied to exercises. Proposes looking at the process of problem solving as an exercise in the scientific method against a historical background in social context with information about personalities involved. Uses an example moving from vague concept of element to a correct understanding of atomic weight and valence. (PVD)
