About Liberato Cardellini

Affiliation:  Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy

My studies concern the use of concept maps and summaries to help students reflect on what they study and analysis of the errors that students make when solving chemical problems.
I use logical problems and suggest helpful strategies in order to help my students to become proficient in solving problems.
