Each chapter covers a broad section of the curriculum and is divided into topics. For each topic the book covers:

  • Student’s likely previous knowledge
  • A suggested teaching sequence with activities necessary to cover basic chemistry
  • Advice about students’ misconceptions, common problems with individual activities, and safety issues
  • Further activities that develop the students’ understanding of the topic
  • Enhancemment ideas that relate the science to everyday contexts and provide new ideas for experienced teachers
  • Suggestions for using ICT

This second edition reflects changes in curricula, ideas from recent curriculum development projects, and the current availability of ICT.

This book draws on the experienced of a wide range of teachers and those involved in science education. It has been produced as part of the Association for Science Education’s commitment to supporting science teachers by disseminating best practice and new ideas to enhance teaching.
