Chemistry at Khaitan



Chemistry is an abstract science in which students find visualization of matter difficult at molecular level. So we use friendly Presentation that makes chemistry more alive and real to the students as we all have mostly audio and visual learners. So the inclusion of these i.e., Audio-Video aid, PPT, videos, some experimentation, and use of ICT helps in understanding the finer detailing of various structures and helps in deeper understanding. Illustrations with analogies are also very helpful to visualize atom and molecules in an interesting manner to keep the brain synapses stronger to retain longer. Though, this process is time consuming but rewarding at the end. Moreover, the teachers take care in selecting analogies which should not be confuse the students.

More emphasis is given to its correlation with everyday life and its interdisciplinary aspect. Students are motivated to explore about the new trends, new researches in chemistry and relate/motivate them to choose projects for practicals. Teachers talk about recent scientific developments and trace them back to scientific discoveries. They make students more interested in the "why" of chemistry instead of the "how" of chemistry so that they prefer to investigate the concepts as opposed to solving algorithmic problems.

At KPS, teachers demonstrate assessment questions that engage students along various points of the spectrum of algorithmic problem solvers and conceptual thinkers and, thus, facilitate more conceptual-thinking among students.
