This course is fully funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry and there is no charge to attend.

Learning objectives

Participants will learn about:

  • the sequence of key ideas that students need in order to understand carbon chemistry
  • a range of contexts for teaching carbon chemistry
  • strategies and activities to support the teaching and learning of the alkanes, alkenes, alcohols and carboxylic acids

Learning outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  • design a sequence of learning to support the development of key ideas in carbon chemistry
  • apply a range of different contexts to teaching key aspects of carbon chemistry at pre-16 level
  • apply models to help students represent structures of carbon compounds and explain the factors that lead to variation in the physical properties
