Abstract

This paper aims to forward a framework that can give an insight how philosophy of chemistry plays a role in reducing chemical misconceptions and be incorporated in the teaching-learning process of chemistry. It is concluded that epistemological explanations and representations specific to the macroscopic, microscopic and symbolic levels of chemistry are important
elements for instructional representations to consider in the teaching-learning process of chemistry. [AJCE, 3(2), June 2013]
