Developing expertise in quantitative chemistry

The Course

Anyone can do calculations in chemistry! This course will give you an opportunity to explore how to make calculations more approachable through a ‘hands-on’ opportunity for teachers to explore effective strategies for teaching quantitative chemistry, particularly at pre-16 level.


You will be able to:

• describe strategies for teaching quantitative chemistry

• understand how to help students carry out calculations using experimental data

• be aware of some of the misconceptions and barriers to learning about quantitative chemistry
