Atomic-Molecular Theory: A Key to Understanding Chemistry Concepts

Varca, Angelice Hafele
Abstract
Description
The purpose of this project was to review Atomic-Molecular Theory (AMT), critique teaching methods associated with AMT, develop a National Board Certification entry, and reach conclusions about appropriate methods for teaching this topic in introductory high-school chemistry. In order to accomplish this, pertinent literature was reviewed. This included National Research Council publications and peer-reviewed journal articles, along with appropriate books and texts. Additionally, the National Board Certification process required unit development, classroom activities, and a written reflection. Conclusions and recommendations for effectively teaching AMT at the high-school level are offered.
