|Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students||
Our courses are designed to give you an in-depth understanding of key concepts in teaching chemistry. Each course can be completed at your own pace, giving you time to try out new strategies and activities in your classroom before progressing further. The course will allow you to learn about the key concepts in that area and access ideas and resources to enhance your classroom teaching.
Chemists need a good understanding of basic mathematical concepts including numerical calculations, algebraic functions and data handling skills in order to succeed in chemistry.
After working through this course you will be able to:
|Evidence underpinning this approach||
This topic was selected to introduce basic mathematical concepts including numerical calculations, algebraic functions and data handling skills that are needed in order to succeed in chemistry. The course provides opportunities to practise mathematical ideas, apply them to chemical contexts and explore some of the common mathematical misconceptions. By improving teacher confidence with the topic, student confidence should also improve.
|How users/participants can evaluate success||
Learning outcomes have been designed by highly qualified course authors, in conjunction with the Royal Society of Chemistry, with the target audience in mind. The course content has been written to achieve the learning outcomes and there are opportunities for self-assessment included within the course.
Within the course there is a course development plan that can be used to stipulate aims and impact. It also includes space to reflect on these at the end of the course.
|Follow-up activities and support||
The course includes links to articles and resources to support lesson planning for teaching the topic, following the course.
