Difficult Ideas in Chemistry REPEATED I05
Difficult ideas in Chemistry

Particles which do not change amidst change, burning which builds up oxides, the funny pH scale, reaction rates - how do we approach these difficult ideas?

  • We explore some of the barriers to understanding our chemical environment, starting with those particles which do not change even though things burn, grow, rot and evaporate around us.
  • Then we examine the process of burning which is a constructive process with energy stored in the fuel/oxygen system (no energy is stored in food or fuels!).
  • The gaseous oxides of combustion are acidic and the solid ashes are alkaline, but what is this strange pH scale?
  • And why do slow reactions get so much faster as the temperature rises – a 10 degree rise in temperature often doubles the rate? (Think of the time it takes milk to go sour – 8 days in the ‘fridge at 4 degrees, 4 days in a cool house at 14 degrees, 2 days in a warm house at 24 and a day at 34 degrees.)
My talk will be exemplified by reactions we see in everyday life, and I will suggest ideas for helping students understand the underlying chemistry.
Attached is a draft of the PowerPoint I will use - the final version will be available after the conference.
About Keith Ross
I started teaching science in school on VSO in India after a metallurgy degree at Oxford. After a year in industry I made teaching my career, first in secondary schools in Birmingham and Leicestershire, then for 3 years in Nigeria. I was deeply inspired by Clive Sutton during a Master's in Education at Leicester University and was involved with some of the early challenges made to the science national curriculum by Ros Driver and colleagues.
In1980 I moved to teacher education at what became the University of Gloucestershire at Cheltenham. I began by working with students from Africa on A level chemistry teaching. Later I became the science tutor for the GITEP post graduate secondary teacher education project and the book “Teaching Secondary Science” now in its 4th edition was the outcome. Today’s talk is based on chapter 14 - 'Difficult ideas in Chemistry'.
In 2007-8 I worked with primary teachers in a college of education in Pakistan, and more recently, retired and living in the South West of France, I have been helping to develop chemistry videos for Fuseschool.

Girls into Global STEM (GIGS) I09
A hands on session where you can find out how an EU funded project involving the UK, Cyprus, Poland and Sweden is inspiring more girls to consider STEM careers. Each country is represented by a university or NGO working with a partner secondary school. In addition in the UK a major partner is Practical Action. So far each country has trialled one or more 'Global STEM Challenges'. These fit into curriculum areas across Europe not only in science but also in geography and citizenship. Each one is drawn from a Sustainable Development Goal:
Zero Hunger
Clean and affordable energy
Sustainable cities and communities
Climate Action
The 'challenge' is for older students (15-16) to develop activities for a younger cohort (12-14) using materials generated by Practical Action. These activities bring together science, global issues and mobile technologies and current thinking is that they will inspire pupils to think how science and technology can provide practical, often low-cost answers to important global issues. We have devised surveys for our school students both before and after the practical work and will look carefully at the results for both boys and girls in the coming weeks. Part of our session will feature students from De Ferrers Academy demonstrating one of their Global STEM Challenges.   You will find out more about all this work and about Years 2 and 3 of the project  at our session!

Transforming STEM Education: Air Quality as a powerful theme for integration I22
Air quality, especially in urban areas, is a world-wide problem. Using an active, audience-involved format, this keynote shows how subject integration engages all levels.
  1. It makes the case for STEM subject integration rather than separate disciplines
  2. It provides valuable content outside that to be expected from traditionally educated teachers
  3. It explores issues of pedagogy that will educate not indoctrinate
  4. It will involve some short interactive interludes
  5. It makes the case for action as part of STEM Education, as part of learner engagement
  6. It moves from hypothetical contexts (nuclear powerstations in every town) to real community issues

“My students are always surprised when they learn that they will be using maths in secondary science classes.” I28
Customer insight research by Cambridge University Press amongst international IGCSE Science teachers reveals that whilst Mathematics is an integral part of scientific study across each of the IGCSE Science subjects, it is one that many students find a barrier to progression and success, and that science teachers lack the knowledge, understanding and confidence to integrate successfully. This session will explore the results of Cambridge University Press research into the practical difficulties faced by teachers in delivering the mathematical elements of IGCSE Science, and introduce a new set of student resources developed in partnership with the ASE to help overcome the difficulties that students and teachers face, to help students build these skills more quickly and effectively, and to improve their success in IGCSE Sciences.

RAF 100 T03
The Institute of Physics is working with the Historical Association on an educational project for the centenary of the Royal Air Force.  This workshop will allow teachers to investigate the STEM activities that form part of the project.
 The RAF100 Schools Project is a national scheme that uses the story of the RAF to explore concepts in both history and physics.
The project offers teachers and students an excellent opportunity to investigate how history and physics are interlinked, showing how human need has driven scientific developments in areas such as computing, radar and navigation. At the same time it will show how physics can be instrumental to humanitarian efforts such as disaster relief. All this has shaped our society in the past – and will continue to do so in the future.
As well as a series of events for teachers and pupils around the UK in 2018, we are offering this set of eight STEM activities, primarily for Years 8 to 10.  These are all downloadable and use simple, cheap materials.  They are linked to a competition for schools.  Schools can sign up at: http://raf100schools.org.uk

Unconscious Bias and Its Effect in the Classroom T35
For more than 30 years, uptake of A-level physics among girls has remained at around 20%. Previous research from the IOP has shown that this 20% comes from certain schools and that schools that achieve a good gender balance in physics achieve a good gender balance in other subjects, suggesting that the problem isn’t with girls or physics - whole school environment makes a difference. 
The latest project from the IOP has trialled interventions that looked at how bias and stereotyping could be addressed in a school environment as well how lower confidence of girls could be addressed. The project shows promising results with the number of girls taking A level physics in targeted schools trebling. This workshop looks at what unconscious bias is, how it affects the classroom and what teachers can do about it.

The true Wonder of Maths always lies Beyond just Numbers S40
By introducing us to the major characters and leading us through many historical twists and turns, Johnny slowly unravels the tale of how humanity built up a knowledge and understanding of shapes, numbers and patterns from ancient times, a story that leads directly to the technological wonderland we live in today. As Galileo said, 'Everything in the universe is written in the language of mathematics', and Wonders Beyond Numbers is your guide to this language.
Mathematics is only one part of this rich and varied tale; we meet many fascinating personalities along the way, such as a mathematician who everyone has heard of but who may not have existed; a Greek philosopher who made so many mistakes that many wanted his books destroyed; a mathematical artist who built the largest masonry dome on earth, which builders had previously declared impossible; a world-renowned painter who discovered mathematics and decided he could no longer stand the sight of a brush; and a philosopher who lost his head, but only after he had died.
Enriched with tales of colourful personalities and remarkable discoveries, there is also plenty of mathematics for keen readers to get stuck into. Written in Johnny Ball's characteristically light-hearted and engaging style, this book is packed with historical insight and mathematical marvels; join Johnny and uncover the wonders found beyond the numbers.

Johnny Ball will be signing copies of his latest book at ASE Booksales in the Exhibition Marquee 12pm-1.30pm on Thursday.

The internet of field and laboratory things: Real data, authentic interfaces for practical work
Please be aware that the work described in this talk is not about replacing field trips and laboratories with something less expensive and less exciting. Rather it is about using the affordances of the internet to take people closer than they might easily get to the exciting discovery opportunities of interactive learning.
The OpenSTEM Labs are the digital equivalent of a field study centre and a block of teaching labs. We began with onscreen activities such as virtual microscopes and other interactive tools linked to real data. Recent investment has allowed the incorporation of facilities for online remote access to real instruments: optical and electron microscopes; analytical tools such as spectrophotometry, FTIR, HPLC, GCMS; a planetary-rover training-landscape; immersive virtual reality. These form a key part of the practical facilities that are now accessible to our distance learning students, via the internet and 24/7. The OpenSTEM Labs enable us to be more inclusive and more accessible than is conventionally the case. In addition to describing how the OpenSTEM Labs are used across all of STEM, including by students of Earth Sciences, this talk will propose ways which we might enable other educators to make use of our facilities. In the presentation several remotely located instruments will be operated and other on screen devices for interactive learning will be demonstrated.
The OpenSTEM Labs are a key feature of the OU's curriculum in several STEM disciplines. It is based on an original initiative with the Wolfson Foundation (2012) to establish the OpenScience Laboratory. In 2015 further investment from a HEFCE STEM capital investment enabled us to expand the laboratory to cover a wide range of disciplines including Engineering, with a new OpenNetworking Lab to be added in the near future. The OpenSTEM Labs are contributing to a HEFCE funded project "Embedding and Sustaining Inclusive STEM Practices" (in collaboration with Earth Science colleagues in Plymouth and Leeds).

Science Ambassadors W44
This workshop is aimed at teachers of key stage 3 (Years 8 and 9) students. This session will provide an overview of what the Institute of Physics Science Ambassador Training Scheme is and how schools can get involved to develop their own Physics Ambassadors. Once trained, these ambassadors can deliver sessions at outreach events, primary schools or for a school STEM club before helping to train a new generation of Science Ambassadors at their school. The scheme is unique in that it uses an inter-generational teaching and learning approach, helping to bridge the gap for the students involved. It also uses inclusive teaching practices to compliment the work the IOP is doing to address gender balance in Physics and empowers students; especially girls, to drive through their own ideas.
 During the session participants will get an opportunity to try out some of the activities that the students complete on the training day, find out a little more about the preparatory personal development workshops, the feedback received to date and what some Science Ambassadors are up to now.

We know that excellent teaching transforms the lives of all students, from those in early years to adult learners. At the Chartered College of Teaching, we believe the way to achieve excellent teaching and leadership is by supporting, developing and giving a voice to teachers, enabling them to be the very best they can be.

The education landscape is challenging. Everything from curricular and assessment reform and budget constraints and workload concerns, to feelings of disempowerment and disillusion, can hamper what happens in the classroom. We want to change that. This is a once-in-a-generation chance for the teaching profession. It is only through developing and showcasing teachers’ expertise that we will restore pride, autonomy and a grassroots voice that will be impossible to ignore.

Threshold Concepts and the Space in Between: Applying research to every day practice T81
Threshold concepts are challenging, “troublesome” concepts that, once mastered, enable students to develop a new (or transformed) understanding, and to make connections that were previously inaccessible. I wanted to identify the stumbling blocks in KS4 Structure and Bonding that hold students back from developing a deeper understanding.
Using misconceptions literature, I identified and compiled a list of tricky concepts, and I aimed to identify the true threshold concepts via teaching and assessment.
I'll demonstrate how you can integrate research ideas, including Misconceptions literature and Cognitive Science, into everyday practice without significantly veering off-piste. Via my usual assessment activities, I identified "hurdles" and "bottlenecks" that prevent students fully understanding a topic.

I'll also talk about how and why I think spaced practice might help students to move from "mimicry" (giving the correct answers to questions, without fully-developed understanding) to "mastery.

Twenty Years after “Beyond 2000”: What does the future hold for the science curriculum? – A view from Salters S14
In 1998, the Nuffield Foundation funded report Beyond 2000 was published. Written and edited by Robin Millar and Jonathan Osborne, it proved to be exceptionally influential. It crystallized issues about the function and audience for school science and led to a major shift in the science National Curriculum. Twenty years later, what is its legacy and is there any longer room for its vision of scientific literacy for all? What do we now think should be the purpose of school science and who should decide such questions? The lecture will reflect on these issues with particular reference to the work of the Salters’ Institute, which is celebrating its Centenary in 2018.

Brave Assessment: Making new qualifications work in the real world T82
As we approach the first round of the new GCSE there is growing anxiety about how our students will fare in their exams. Science leaders and teachers are increasingly required to predict outcomes from an unfamiliar assessment and, quite rightly, intervene to improve the confidence of those students that fall behind where they should be. This important work can only be successful if it is based on robust data. I have developed an approach to secondary assessment that uses what we already know and the power of collective working to give us confidence in the conclusions we draw from student assessment. Those conclusions can then drive our teaching to secure the success of our students. This session will explain the assessment approach and allow hands on exploration of how you can use the information with your students.

Students’ Learning in Biology: To what extent do they understand concepts on inheritance, evolution and genetics? S35
In Biology, topics on inheritance, evolution and genetics often present considerable difficulties for students to achieve good conceptual understanding. Achieving understanding in science at the conceptual and functional levels is a worthwhile goal for students in school science. Work done in the author’s research group suggests that one way to obtain a better appreciation of students’ understanding on inheritance is to expose students to a hands-on enrichment program that focuses on inheritance at a science centre. Also, to better appreciate students’ understanding of evolution and genetics is to leverage on approaches commonly used in the educational psychology literature - for example, appending a confidence scale to two- tier multiple choice questions on these topics can provide valuable insights on not only how students perform in such tests but also allows for the extraction of a suite of quantitative measures related to the metacognitive aspects of learning as well. The presentation will focus on these and other aspects, and would be illustrated with suitable examples from the topics of inheritance at upper primary level as well as evolution and genetics at the high school level.

Using the Sustainable Schools Doorways T108
SEEd and the Sustainable Schools Alliance have recently launched a new Sustainable Schools Doorway on Nature & Biodiversity.
This practical session will provide and enable teachers to trial a framework for using this Doorway; linking it to their current projects and unlocking the potential for ‘learning for sustainability’ in their schools.

The Sustainable Schools Framework was built on the principle of care – of oneself, of others and of the environment. The Doorways into the framework are approached through Campus, Curriculum or Community approaches. There 8 original doorways in the framework are: Food and Drink; Energy and Water; Travel and Traffic; Purchasing and Waste; Buildings and Grounds; Inclusion and Participation; Local Well-being; and Global Dimension. These Doorways are now being updated to enable practical curriculum links and reflect the Sustainable Development Goals - or Global Goals.

BBC Micro:bit in the Lab W102
In this hands-on workshop, we will construct a device to measure soil moisture from just a pair of nails and BBC micro:bit. Once calibrated against different soils samples we will then connect a water pump to make an automated plant-watering system. All apparatus, instructions and code provided.

The BBC micro:bit has a few on-board sensors which we can access to create a simple sensor, with an output on the LED display. Taking this a little further there is a simple data-logging app for iOS and Android that connects via Bluetooth and will collect and graph real-time data from the accerometers, magnetometer or temperature sensor of the BBC micro:bit. I will provide a quick demonstration of these features before moving on to the main activity.

Taking things a step further still, it is possible to construct your own sensors for experients in the school lab. All secondary schools were sent a set of BBC microbits so hopfully most schools will have access to these. If not, then they are relatively inexpensive to purchase. In this workshop we will learn how to connect a pair of nails to inputs on the BBC mirco:bit using standard lab equipment and write some simple code to create a device to test the moisture level of soil in a plant pot. After calibrating our sensor against some different soil samples we will then add a small water pump to the output of the BBC micro:bit to create an automated plant-watering system. 

We will be using a kit that has been kindly loaned to us for this session by Science Scope. Detials of which you can find here here

Think-Universe! S27
Join this workshop and learn how to get involved in a revolutionary, challenging and exciting project on Science Education at KS2 and KS3.

Think Universe! All is one is a short but essential foundation course on the nature of the world and the origins of everything, including ourselves.
Science content
The science content is necessarily wide, but very simple and presented at a coherent and accessible level.
In the first few lessons, pupils embark in an adventure of discovery that starts at the world around us, then explores smaller and smaller components to reach finally the smallest things imaginable: the fundamental building blocks of the Universe. Next, pupils assemble a cosmic timeline, where major milestones such as the Big Bang, the formation of atoms, molecules, stars, planets, living environments and humanity find their places. The timeline is the backbone of the course and also provides a historical sequence from physics to chemistry and finally, biology. The diverse topics in all lessons are closely linked to each other in a coherent and continuous experience.
Teaching methodology
It is a structured questioning method called Question Line, where thinking is at the core of the learning process (Question Line is part of the PhD research by one of us - Shirin Sheikh-Bahai - at the UCL Institute of Education). How are the questioning, thinking and learning connected to each other? What is the relevance of misconceptions? How to make knowledge and ability gaps vanish between pupils coming from a diversity of backgrounds? There is plenty of practical work using optical microscopes, building plasticine models of atomic structure, polystyrene models of simple molecules, developing a physical timeline of the Universe, and so forth.
Training for teachers, science coordinators and science leaders

Both science content and methodology require specific training, which can be done in three twilight teacher masterclasses (adaptable format). One of the main aims of this training is to de-mystify the apparent complexity and difficulty of the science content, by understanding that it is to be kept at a basic conceptual level well away from the higher levels of conventional courses in particle physics, astronomy, biochemistry or evolutionary biology. A science background is not required. Our masterclasses empower teachers and leave them confident for a successful classroom delivery with the additional possibility of becoming teacher trainers themselves.
Getting involved
In this workshop we will present a broad view of the entire project and most important, we will describe how to get involved and trained on science content, Question Line methodology, use of the dedicated teaching equipment and materials and even how to become ambassadors as part of a future nationwide expansion.
