Generally, chemistry teachers presuppose that students have mastered the concept of ’the mole’ and can use standard form notation in moles calculations by the time they need to use it in chemistry contexts, but this is not always the case.

Join us in this interactive session to find out about alternative ways to approach these topics to meet the needs of every learner in your class.  We will share numerous resources, articles and practice questions on moles, Avogadro’s constant, standard form and stoichiometry. These will all be accessible to you after the session for you to use in your classroom when teaching these topics.

The session is best suited for teachers of pre- and post-16 chemistry, including early career, NQT and non-chemistry specialists. Please note, this session is a 1 hour interactive session, taking a more detailed look at the topic. We will also be running a shorter 30 minute version, without interactivity on Thursday 16 June, 12.30–1pm BST.
