Synopsis

Chemists in a Social and Historical Context by Dorothy Warren

Chemistry has a human face and the aim of this resource is to present chemists as real people and not stereotypical 'mad scientists' whose lives are completely dominated by science. It includes carefully chosen examples of chemists through the ages and reflects on the difficulties they overcame. Today we live in a world where scientists are accepted regardless of race or gender, however some examples show that this has not always been the case. Chemists in a Social and Historical Context focuses on strategies for teaching about people in chemistry and is an introduction to some chemists who played a role in the development of major ideas in the subject. This resource includes a range of activities designed to look at different aspects of teaching about people in chemistry and the chemical sciences to 11-19 year old students. It contains teachers' notes, background information, photocopiable student worksheets and answers.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
