Calculations in Chemistry / Cognitive Load Theory

Submitted by Jesse Tye / Ball State University on Thu, 05/30/2019 - 16:12

I am thinking of trying Daum and Nelson's Calculations in Chemistry workbook.  A main idea of the workbook is Cognitive Load Theory and getting students to move concepts from short term to long term memory.  A major tenet of the workbook is the idea that memorization of equations and certain constants IS an important step in moving concepts into long term memory.

I would love your input about the Calculations in Chemistry workbook or Cognitive Load Theory in general.
