Students' Reasoning about Basic Chemical Thermodynamics and Chemical Bonding: What Changes Occur during a Context-based Post-16 Chemistry Course?
Barker, Vanessa; Millar, Robin
International Journal of Science Education, v22 n11 p1171-1200 Nov 2000
A longitudinal study of students (n=250) following the Salters Advanced Chemistry course probed a range of chemical ideas including the exothermicity of bond formation and the development of thinking about covalent, ionic, and intermolecular bonds. At the start, many students demonstrated misunderstandings about these chemical ideas, but their understanding improved in general as the course progressed. (Author/SAH)
