Cintamulya, Imas; Mawartiningsih, Lilik – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2018
The plant taxonomy textbooks that are generally used in colleges need to be complemented with a DNA-based molecular review. In general, plant taxonomy textbooks devote more space to morphology than to molecular-level characteristics. The research reported here used the results of DNA-based research to develop a molecular plant taxonomy textbook.…

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…

Abdullah, Helmi – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2018
One of the fundamental problems for the college students is not being able to solve the multi-concept physics problems. The reason is that the problem solving strategies is limited to known-asked strategy (traditional strategy).Though this strategy can only be used to solve the problems of mono-concept physics. Therefore, this research on the use…
