Course description

Quantitative chemistry enables 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. In this module you will learn about the core ideas or building blocks that are required for a deep understanding of quantitative chemistry. You will start to appreciate how relatively simple ideas develop and progress to more complex calculations as more knowledge is acquired. This line of progression is clearly seen within the thread of ideas, which may be used as a point of reference.

After working through this module 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; and
• access a range of activities and resources to support students in their learning of quantitative chemistry.

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.
