Teaching Quantitative Chemistry: Funded CLPL Course

  • February 3, 2020
  • Aberdeen City Campus
  • February 3, 2020 (4:00 pm - 6:30 pm)

The Royal Society of Chemistry presents this funded CLPL course, open to all teachers of Chemistry.

Quantitative chemistry is a very important branch of chemistry enabling chemists to calculate known quantities of materials. For example, how much product can be made from a known starting material or how much of a given component is present in a sample.

Quantitative analysis includes any method used for determining the amount of a chemical in a sample. The amount is always expressed as a number with appropriate units. An acid-base titration is an example of quantitative analysis.

After the course you will be able to:

  • understand the core ideas in quantitative chemistry;
  • explain how the core ideas of quantitative chemistry develop and progress throughout secondary education;
  • identify common misconceptions and know how these can be addressed;
  • confidently and competently teach aspects of quantitative chemistry to secondary aged students;
  • access a range of activities and resources to support students in their learning of quantitative chemistry.
