Lab-Based Chemistry for Teachers in Grades 6–10

CHM 6511 4 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Incorporates classroom- and lab-based activities to help participants develop their competencies to teach chemistry and to align their teaching to the Massachusetts curriculum frameworks in high school chemistry and middle school physical science. Lectures, lecture-demonstrations, and collaborative investigations focus on how to teach the nature of the physical (e.g., density, viscosity, and solubility) and the chemical properties of substances, changes of physical state, the properties of solutions, acids and bases, the atomic model of matter, chemical formulas and nomenclature, and chemical reactions. The lab portion uses a computer-based sensor and traditional apparatus to conduct experiments and gather and analyze data. Uses pre- and posttests to assess learning.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
