Chemistry education research shows that students build strong connections to chemistry concepts when they can incorporate real-world contexts. As the Next Generation Science Standards become more prevalent at the K-12 level and as more college faculty incorporate current education research to make chemistry relatable, context will continue to grow in its importance. Presentations in this symposium will focus on showing how integration of context has worked in classrooms at various grade levels.
