Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Using History in Teaching Chemistry

Symposium Title: Using History in Teaching Chemistry
Descrption: Textbooks are written by chemists who are formalized individuals that deal with the abstractions of our modern chemical science on a daily basis. Although, in most cases, their books present topics in well organized and fairly comprehensive discussions, they do not allow for a graduated learning of the material. A historical approach allows students to see the simplified concepts and the evolution of ideas that lead to our modern theories and principles.
