Harnessing energy from heat changes to solve a problem - Version 2

Rating

Using inquiry-focused reading, students will explore an anchor text and supporting resources to investigate the principles of transfer of heat energy with applications of the concept to solve real world problems.
The instructors will prepare a sample presentation and model for students the steps taken to go from a text to the final project. Students will learn annotations, two column notes, and citations, while learning about how chemistry is used to solve real world problems based on the instructor provided materials. The students will then apply those concepts to a different project assigned by the instructors and apply the same strategies to their own texts to demonstrate their application of learning to a different problem.
Over the course of the unit, students will explore a variety of resources to develop their knowledge of heat energy changes that accompany physical and chemical reactions, measurement of heat energy, and heat energy transfer between the system and the surroundings. They will expand their ability to use informational text to support their inquiry and research, explore scientific literature, and develop questions to determine how the application of energy transfer principles can be applied to solve real world problems.

Ma.t.che.s. is a project funded by the European Commission in line of the ERASMUS+ program. His main aim is to raise the atractivity of chemistry lessons in school.
On the website of Ma.t.che.s. you will find resources teachers could use for their chemistry lessons:
1. A compendium of action you could do with students. All dealing with chemistry but meant to change students attitude toward chemistry into something positiv.
2. Friendly designed worksheets in German, Turkish, Greek, Polish and Spanish language.
3. Material for different games all dealing with chemistry. All developed for chemistry lessons or a stand-in class.

There is also material about a survey the five Schools in the project did. It's about student's attitude toward chemistry.

The Webpage is in English. The material is in six languages: Greek, Polish, Spain, Turkish and German.
