A School Chemistry Method Being the Teacher's Supplement to Chemistry Notes and Papers Chemistry Notes and Papers for School Use (Notes and Question Papers to Supplement the Pupil's Own Laboratory Notes)

    Abstract

    IN “A School Chemistry Method” an attempt is made to overcome the well-known difficulty of preaching from another man's notes by the issue of a companion booklet explaining the author's method. This part of the work will be found useful, though the first chapter, on “The Aims of Science Teaching,” is either not necessary, since the book is intended only for teachers of chemistry, or, alternately, must be considered to be by implication a rather severe indictment of that part of the teaching profession. The remainder of the book explains the manner in which the author intends “Chemistry Notes and Papers” to be used. It must, however, be noted that there are also a detailed syllabus of the course, a list of essay subjects, well graduated and not too difficult, a key to the exercises—both practical and numerical—and a short selection of books suitable for the science library.
