The Challenging Chemical Misconceptions in the Classroom project was carried out in the academic year 2000-2001. It was funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSCTFProject) and based at the University of London Institute of Education.
During the year a number of probes were developed and tested, designed around common alternative conceptions and learning difficulties in chemistry learning.
These were published in the second volume of 'Chemical Misconceptions - Prevention, Diagnosis and Cure'.
