Abstract
This study was to explore students' thought patterns on problem and problem solving in the course of general chemistry. The participants were 9 students taking the course of general chemistry in a university in Seoul. Data were collected from various sources; three individual interviews, classroom observations, and essays written by students.Data were all transcribed and then analyzed circularly in constant component analysis. As the results of this study, six thought patterns of students in the context of learning general chemistry were presented. These thought patterns were common and existed important component within most of students' conceptual ecologies about learning chemistry. Implications of chemistry and science learning related to this results were discussed.
