The learning of formal operational concepts is a complex and difficult task for many
students. One such example is the mole concept where due to its abstract, theoretical nature,
is recognised as one of the most difficult topics to teach and learn within the chemistry
curriculum. The purpose of this paper is to provide some insight into the many studies which
explored difficulties or misconceptions in the learning and use of the mole concept.
Instructional approaches that facilitate meaningful conceptual understanding of the mole
concept will also be discussed.
