Karpudewan, Mageswary; Mathanasegaran, Kumareson – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2018
The abstractness of certain chemistry concepts demands the use of appropriate teaching strategies to enable students to construct mental images of the concepts. The concepts include understanding the effects of concentration and catalyst on the rate of reaction. The reactions at the molecular level are not visible to human eyes and the use of…

Manneh, Ilana L.; Hamza, Karim M.; Rundgren, Carl-Johan; Eriksson, Lars – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2018
Anthropomorphisms are widespread at all levels of the educational system even among science experts. This has led to a shift in how anthropomorphisms are viewed in science education, from a discussion of whether they should be allowed or avoided towards an interest in their role in supporting students' understanding of science. In this study we…

Siswati, Bea Hana; Corebima, Aloysius Duran – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2017
Many researches on the correlation between metacognitive skills and concept gaining have been widely carried out based on a particular learning model. It was uncovered that there was a significant positive correlation between metacognitive skills and concept gaining. Is it always so, related to one or several learning models? This survey study is…
