TDSB Eureka Conference Handouts:

One of the aims of the chemical education research project is to provide information of relevance to high school teachers. While the primary focus is obviously on students taking chemistry, much of this information will be equally applicable to other science subjects.

Eureka 2011:

“Solving Problems Using Problem Solving”

Abstract: We will explore the use of different forms of questions as diagnostic and formative assessment tools to tackle alternate (naive) conceptions and promote conceptual understanding. Examples will be discussed in the light of educational research on how students form alternate conceptions, providing insight on teaching strategies to address this.
