Student Understanding of the Concepts of Substance and Chemical Change*
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.02
  Time: 6:00PM - 6:45PM
  Author: Amy D. Robertson, University of Washington

  Co-Author(s): Peter S. Shaffer, Lillian C McDermott
  Abstract: One of the fundamental notions in basic chemistry is that a chemical change is a process that transforms substances and conserves atoms. As part of a multi-year study on student reasoning about topics related to the particle nature of matter, a set of questions was designed to probe the extent to which university-level chemistry students apply the description of chemical change articulated above. Results from these questions will be presented and compared with results from previous studies involving K-12 students.
