Abstract

The purpose of the study is to determine the extent to which computer-based instructional supplements enhance students’ knowledge and skills in solving chemical equations, stoichiometry, and the mole concept. The specific hypothesis to be tested is how do computer-based instructional supplements enhance students’ knowledge and skills in the three topics? A mixed method design will be used. Both quantitative and qualitative data will be collected. Four teachers and 200 ninth grade students, in two advanced placement, and two general chemistry classes at University High School will be used as participants. Data will be collected through observations, semi-structured interviews, questionnaires, students’ artifacts, and pre-and-posttests. Qualitative data will be analyzed by coding and identifying themes while a one way ANOVA be used for quantitative data analysis. This study has implications for teaching, and learning of chemistry at high school. It is also anticipated the findings will be helpful to those involved in designing high school chemistry curriculum.
