A Study Comparing the Efficacy of a Mole Ratio Flow Chart to Dimensional Analysis for Teaching Reaction Stoichiometry.
Wagner, Eugene P.
School Science and Mathematics, v101 n1 p10-22 Jan 2001
Reaction stoichiometry calculations have always been difficult for students. Offers the use of a mole ratio flow chart (MRFC) as a logistical sequence of steps that incorporates molar proportions as alternative problem solving techniques to improve student understanding. Indicates that MRFC users performed as well on exam problems covering reaction stoichiometry calculations as students using dimensional analysis. (Contains 34 references.) (Author/ASK)
