Students' Reasoning about Chemical Reactions: What Changes Occur During a Context-Based Post-16 Chemistry Course?
Barker, Vanessa; Millar, Robin
International Journal of Science Education, v21 n6 p645-65 Jul 1999
Explores changes in students' (n=250) thinking about basic chemical ideas during a context-based curricular approach. Suggests that 16- to 18-year-old students enter chemistry courses with a wide range of misunderstandings about chemical reactions, but understanding improves steadily as the course progresses. Concludes that even misunderstandings not addressed specifically in the course diminished among students further along in the program. Contains 29 references. (Author/WRM)
