Multiple Representations in Chemical Education by John K. Gilbert, David Treagust

By John K. Gilbert, David Treagust

Chemistry seeks to supply qualitative and quantitative causes for the saw behaviour of parts and their compounds. Doing so comprises employing 3 kinds of illustration: the macro (the empirical homes of substances); the sub-micro (the natures of the entities giving upward push to these properties); and the symbolic (the variety of entities desirous about any alterations that take place). even supposing knowing this triplet dating is a key point of chemical schooling, there's substantial facts that scholars locate nice trouble in attaining mastery of the guidelines concerned. In bringing jointly the paintings of top chemistry educators who're studying the triplet courting on the secondary and college degrees, the ebook discusses the educational concerned, the issues that scholars come across, and winning techniques to educating. in response to the mentioned learn, the editors argue for a coherent version for figuring out the triplet courting in chemical education.
