(C) Chemistry Modeling (3 CEUs)

Course number : DEV10 E830   
« back to classes page
This workshop will:
  • Guide participants to develop a small set of conceptual models that students can use to explain key phenomena in chemistry commonly taught after stoichiometry. This includes further development of the atom, periodicity and bonding, energy, equilibrium, acids and bases, molecular interactions, and biomolecules.
  • Identify and use key laboratory investigations as the core of instruction.
  • Lead students to develop skills from CCSS/NGSS such as reasoning abstractly and quantitatively (including ratio and proportional relationships), evaluating experimental design, analyzing and interpreting data, constructing arguments from evidence, and developing and using models of natural phenomena.
  • Address common student misconceptions about matter.
  • Use coordinated representations (descriptive, graphical, mathematical, and diagrammatic) of the core models to enhance student understanding.
  • Create a student-centered chemistry classroom.

Please read:  This registration is only for the optional Continuing Education Units (CEUs) that can be earned with this program.
One CEU is equivalent to ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education/training experience under responsible, qualified direction and instruction (definition of the International Association for Continuing Education and Training-IACET).
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are based on the number of sixty-minute contact hours for a course or program. (Example: If a course or program meets ten contact hours, one CEU will be awarded.) To receive CEUs, the participant must attend all the hours required for that CEU value.
Earned CEUs may be useful in maintaining certification or licensure. They may also document the participants’ continuing professional education for an employer, association or credentialing agency. Cal Poly Extended Education maintains a record of the CEUs participants have earned through programs and courses approved for CEUs.
CEUs are for non-credit courses or programs. They cannot be converted to quarter or semester hour credit and they cannot be applied to degree programs.
CEUs will not be awarded retroactively. Registration for CEUs must occur by the deadline specified for the program.
CEUs earned will be recorded on an official Cal Poly transcript, which must be ordered and paid for by the participant. An email notification will be sent to participants once CEUs have been recorded and transcripts can be ordered.
