Gilemkhanova, Elvira N. – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2016
The changes in contemporary social and cultural environment determine the necessity to increase the efficiency of adaptive mechanisms, especially for those categories of people who are subject to social risks. One of those categories is students prone to chemical addictions. To study the relationship of forms of social interaction with problems of…

Aydin, Sevgi; Sinha, Somnath; Izci, Kemal; Volkmann, Mark – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2014
The purpose of this study was to investigate inscriptions used in "Types of Chemical Reactions" topic in Turkish, Indian, and American chemistry textbooks. We investigated both the types of inscriptions and how they were used in textbooks to support learning. A conceptual analysis method was employed to determine how those textbooks use…

Zejnilagic-Hajric, Meliha; Nuic, Ines – Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal, 2020
In this paper, the education system in Bosnia and Herzegovina is presented in the light of current state-level legislation, with an emphasis on chemistry education at the primary, secondary and tertiary level. The consequences of the last war in our country still persist and are visible in many aspects of everyday life, including the education…

Taskin, Vahide; Bernholt, Sascha – International Journal of Science Education, 2014
The fluent use of the chemical language is a major tool for successfully passing chemistry courses at school or university as well as for working as a chemist, since chemical formulae are both a descriptive and a heuristic tool. However, numerous studies have revealed remarkable difficulties of students with chemical formulae both at school and at…

Aragón, María del Mar; Oliva, José M.; Navarrete, Antonio – International Journal of Science Education, 2014
This article analyzes the relationship between pupils' level of understanding of the analogies proposed in class while working with a model of chemical change and their competence at constructing a coherent verbal discourse of that model in both its macroscopic and submicroscopic representations. The study participants were 35 pupils in their 3rd…

Tesfamariam, Gebrekidan Mebrahtu; Lykknes, Annette; Kvittingen, Lise – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
In theory, practical work is an established part of university-level chemistry courses. However, mainly due to budget constraints, large class size, time constraints and inadequate teacher preparations, practical activities are frequently left out from chemistry classroom instruction in most developing countries. Small-scale chemistry (SSC)…

Çelikkiran, Aysegül Tarkin – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2020
The aim of this qualitative case study was to explore secondary students' ability to transfer among representation levels in relation to stoichiometry. In the study, 40 students in the 11th grade from two classes of an Anatolian high school in the east part of Turkey were selected as sample group. The data were collected by using a questionnaire…

Sharpe, Andrés Santos – International Journal of Higher Education, 2019
This paper is derived from a field study in the framework of my doctoral dissertation, in which we analyze life stories (Bertaux, 2005) of young people who have discontinued their studies at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) in four courses with a high rate of dropout between the years 2005-2015: Computer Engineering, Anthropological Sciences,…

Pratt, Justin M.; Yezierski, Ellen J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Little scholarly investigation of chemistry outreach carried out by undergraduate students in schools and communities has occurred despite widespread practice and monetary investment by large national and international organizations. This study provides the first investigation of these fairly uncharted waters by characterizing expected outcomes of…

Sopandi, Wahyu; Kadarohman, Asep; Rosbiono, Momo; Latip, Abdul; Sukardi, Rendi Restiana – International Journal of Instruction, 2018
Among three levels of chemical representation, the sub-microscopic level is the most difficult to learn by students. To solve the problem, it is assumed that the concept of the discontinuous nature of matter or particle concept should be mastered initially by students before they learn sub-microscopic representations of further chemical phenomena.…

Freire, Melquesedeque; Talanquer, Vicente; Amaral, Edenia – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Understanding the nature of chemical thinking and action, as well as their application and impact on our world should be central goals of chemistry education at all educational levels. However, traditional school chemistry is still mostly focused on having students learn the body of declarative knowledge built over the years in the discipline.…
