Abstract

The paper describes a strategy that uses problem solving to teach the thermokinetic concept, based on student’s previously established proficiency in thermochemistry and kinetics. Chemistry teachers often use this method because it ensures easy achievement of both formative and informative science skills. This teaching strategy is tailored for students that prove special intellectual resources, Olympiad participants and to those who find chemistry a potential professional route

Keywords: problem-solving curriculum; thermodynamic and kinetic characterization of dynamic equilibrium; thermokinetic laws; linear regression
