Cooper, Melanie M.; Kouyoumdjian, Hovig; Underwood, Sonia M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
Acid-base chemistry is central to a wide range of reactions. If students are able to understand how and why acid-base reactions occur, it should provide a basis for reasoning about a host of other reactions. Here, we report the development of a method to characterize student reasoning about acid-base reactions based on their description of…
