Student misconceptions dealing with the invisible particulate-level world of chemistry is well documented in research. Misconceptions in lab are inevitable since the observations students see in lab are caused by the invisible particulate-level of chemistry. This workshop will model techniques to help identify and address misconceptions during lab. Remediating during lab is crucial because it provides instructors additional tools to overcome misconceptions that a class discussion does not. Classroom research will be shared. Participants will perform an AP Chemistry inquiry-style lab using probe ware and engage in techniques to address misconceptions during lab.
