Sevian, Hannah; Hugi-Cleary, Deirdre; Ngai, Courtney; Wanjiku, Florence; Baldoria, Jesse Mhel – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
Context-based learning (CBL) is advocated as beneficial to learners, but more needs to be understood about how different contexts used in courses influence student outcomes. Gilbert defined several models of context that appear to be used in chemistry. In one model that achieves many criteria of student meaning-making, the context is provided by…

Niaz, Mansoor – Instructional Science, 2000
Describes a study that was designed to develop a framework for examining the way in which chemistry textbooks describe the kinetic theory and related issues. The framework was developed by a rational reconstruction of the kinetic molecular theory of gases based on historians and philosophers of science. (Contains 102 references.)(Author/LRW)

Thomas, Gregory P.; McRobbie, Campbell J. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2002
Focuses on practices related to the use of a microcomputer-based laboratory (MBL) in a high school chemistry course in which students studied gases and kinetic theory. Reports that little or no higher order thinking was employed as students engaged in using the MBL and that some alternative conceptions were still evident. (Contains 42 references.)…

Treagust, David F.; Chandrasegaran, A. L.; Crowley, Julianne; Yung, Benny H. W.; Cheong, Irene P.-A.; Othman, Jazilah – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
This paper reports on the understanding of three key conceptual categories relating to the kinetic particle theory: (1) intermolecular spacing in solids, liquids and gases, (2) changes of state and intermolecular forces and (3) diffusion in liquids and gases, amongst 148 high school students from Brunei, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore using 11…

Plumb, Robert C. – J Chem Educ, 1970
This is the first of a new series of brief ancedotes about materials and phenomena which exemplify chemical principles. Examples include (1) the sea-lab experiment illustrating principles of the kinetic theory of gases, (2) snow-making machines illustrating principles of thermodynamics in gas expansions and phase changes, and (3) sunglasses that…

Alexander, John J., Ed. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1983
Acceptable answers are provided for two chemistry questions. The first question is related to the prediction of the appearance of non-first-order proton nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra. The second question is related to extraterrestrial kinetic theory of gases. (JN)

Hartford, Fred; Good, Ron – School Science and Mathematics, 1976
Evaluates the CHEM study topics of kinetic theory of gases, phase changes, chemical bonds, and equilibrium as to the level of cognitive development required for an understanding of each subject. Advocates an assignment of topics within the range of a student's cognitive ability in an individual study format of instruction. (CP)

Hansen, John R. – 1971
The intent of this investigation was to design a resource unit to be used by junior high school science teachers to teach the concept of the kinetic theory of gases. The document was prepared to aid teachers with minimal preparation in physics. The research design consisted of three main subproblems: (1) the identification of the subtopics of the…

Fuller, Robert G., Ed.; And Others – 1975
This is part of a series of 42 Calculus Based Physics (CBP) modules totaling about 1,000 pages. The modules include study guides, practice tests, and mastery tests for a full-year individualized course in calculus-based physics based on the Personalized System of Instruction (PSI). The units are not intended to be used without outside materials;…

Cho, In-Young; Park, Hyun-Ju; Choi, Byung-Soon – 2000
This study was conducted to describe in detail Korean students' conceptual change learning processes in the study of kinetic theory of gases. The study was interpretive, using multiple data sources to achieve a triangulation of data. Three students from a public high school for boys served as representative cases. How epistemological aspect and…
