This study was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of learning activities based on case-based learning over traditionally designed chemistry instruction on eleventh grade students' understanding of solubility equilibrium. The subjects of this study consisted of 63 eleventh grade students from two intact classes of an urban high school instructed with same chemistry teacher. Each teaching method was randomly assigned as control and experimental group. The experimental group received case-based learning, in which real life cases were discussed via small group discussions; the control group received traditional instruction in which lecturing and discussion was carried out. The results showed that case-based learning instruction produced significantly greater achievement in understanding of solubility equilibrium concepts in comparison with traditional instruction. Also, the results revealed that students had misconceptions related to chemical equilibrium. According to the results of this study, case-based learning is effective for elimination of misconceptions and the enhancement of students' understanding.

Effectiveness of case-based learning instruction on students’ understanding of solubility equilibrium concepts
Çam, Aylin; Geban, Ömer; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2009)
The main purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of case- based learning method instruction over traditional method instruction on eleventh grade high school students’ understanding of solubility equilibrium concepts. In addition, students’ attitudes toward chemistry as a school subject and students’ epistemological beliefs were investigated. Sixty-two eleventh grade students from two classes of a chemistry course taught by the same teacher in Atakent High School in 2007-2008 spring semesters ...
Effectiveness of 5E learning cycle model on hihg school students' understanding of solubility equilibrium concept
Aydemir, Nurdane; Geban, Ömer; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2012)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of instruction based on 5E learning cycle model (LCI) compared to Traditional Instruction (TI) and gender on 11th grade students’ understanding of solubility equilibrium concept, students’ perceived motivation, use of learning strategies, and attitudes towards chemistry. There were 53 students in the experimental group instructed by the LCI and 56 students in the control group instructed by the TI. Solution Concept Test and Science Process Skills Test ...

The main purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of instruction based on constructivist approach over traditionally designed chemistry instruction on ninth grade students2 understanding of chemical bonding concepts. In addition, the effect of instruction on students2 attitude toward chemistry as a school subject and the effect of gender difference on understanding of chemical bonding concepts were investigated. Forty-two ninth grade students from two classes of a chemistry course taught by th...

Effectiveness of case-based learning instruction on pre-service teachers' chemistry motivation and attitudes toward chemistry
ÇAM, AYLİN; Geban, Ömer (2017-03-01)
Background: The development of primary pre-service teachers' chemistry motivation and attitudes toward chemistry were examined in order to develop their science literacy using case-based learning. Students' ideas were emphasized, real-life situations were discussed, and students could share their ideas and knowledge with peers; as a result, students were active in the learning process.Purpose: The purpose of the study was to investigate the effectiveness of using case-based learning instruction to increase ...
