Abstract: Research has demonstrated that students at all levels come to science classes with preconceptions (or misconceptions) about various aspects of the physical world around them, and that these misconceptions are rather resistant to formal instruction. Numerous studies have also shown that students can produce correct answers to various kinds of problems, but their understanding of the underlying science concepts was lacking. This state of affairs has been attributed to superficial or rote learning, which is contrasted with meaningful or deep learning. This paper highlights the use of concept maps as a tool for enhancing of meaningful learning or deep learning among chemistry students.
