CORE CONCEPTS THAT MAKE UP THE TOPIC YOU CHOSE 1) What do you intend the students to learn about this topic? 2) Why is it important for students to know this? 3) What else do you know about this topic (that you do not intend students to know yet)? 4) What are the difficulties/limitations associated with teaching this topic? Core Concept 1 Students are recalled homogenous mixture, solvent, solute and solubility etc..notions which were showed at primary school. Students frequently face with this topic in their everyday life So knowing this topic can make their life easier and provide them to understand their environment. More detailed calculations about solutions and solubility. Core Concept 2 Students learn the effect of temperature and pressure on solubility and they can explain these effect by examples. Because there are some questions about this topic in University Entrance Exam this topic affects the success of the exam. While thinking macroscobic nature of a solution, students struggle to understand the concept. For example they may Students can struggle to understand the microscobic nature of solutions and compare with Calculations about the pressure effect on solubility(Henry’s law) Concept Concept 3 Students learn the percent solubility notion and know that solubility is identity of matter or distinguishing property of matter. This topic is one of the basic and important topics in chemistry.So, if student aims to continue his/her career in this are a or related area, he/she should learn this topic properly More detied information and calculations about solubility equilibria( common ion effect, Ph effect etc.. Because it is impossible to show particular view of solutions in reality should use models. Core Concept 4 Students can show the microscobic view of a solution(such as sugar water solution) by using symbols to represent particles Learning science and Mathematics improves analitical thinking. This topic also useful and can help this goal. More detailed information about microscobic nature of solutions and forces between them. Core Concept 5 Students can explain a solubility temperature graph and can solve exercises based on that. Core Concept 6 5) What do you know about students’ thinking which might influence your teaching of this idea? 6) What are some of the other factors that you need to consider that might influence your teaching of this topic? 7) What kind of methods or strategies you may use to teach this topic? Explain the reasons for using these methods or strategies. think sugar melts in water. Only explaining these notions and rules is not really satisfactory for students to learn this topic. We should explain the concept by visulizing it. ( drawing by using models, experimenting, activities and animations are really useful. I should consider that all students have different understanding because of their backrounds,attitudes and experiences Firstly I should understand what students already know about this topic. It can be detected by giving worksheets before starting the lesson. This Provides me conciousness about macroscobic representation. I should think all possible misconceptions about this topic. So ,I should point on these misconceptions for not to occur or to change them. Actually an animation can be very effective to teach this topic. An animation can be showed about the representation of microscobic view of a solution.It can be Each classroom have different characteristics . So, we should not have exactly same and strict plan to every lesson and classes. There are several experiments about this topic. Students can make experiments individually or by grouping. They can collect datas, draw graps, and explain results and reasons Attracting students’ attention to the lesson is very important in order to learn the topic. So, we support students to participate lesson in order to make Students should be prepared before coming to the lesson in order to have an efficient lesson. So, we can give them assignments before lesson. students. 8) What are the specific ways of ascertaining students’ understanding or confusion around this topic (include likely range of responses) Applying very successful assessment about this topic. better if models are made simple.(not detailed molecule structures). Then, an assignment of course. Previously we can evaluate their knowledge about this topic by giving assignment in the class and after the lectures we can give same assignment to observe improvement. of these results. We should give assignment after an animation or an activity. We should give assignment while experimenting and collect detailed experiment report. interactive lesson. We can make them think about the concept by asking interesting questions about topic. A well prepared exam is required to observe their learning and skills.
