Resumen

D'ALESSANDRO, Oriana; CURIA, María V  y  BRIAND, Laura E. How to Integrate the Fundamentals of Materials Science at the Three Educational Levels through the Synthesis and Observation of Macroscopic Crystals. Form. Univ. [online]. 2009, vol.2, n.1, pp.3-6. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062009000100002.

This work analyzes the idea of integrating the fundamentals of materials science at the three educational levels, from elementary school to university level, using a classical experiment. A methodology for the synthesis and growing of hydrated cupper sulfate crystals has been developed. With this experiment various basic concepts such as solution, solubility, unit cells, types of crystals and structure of matter are discussed. Additionally, the level of chemistry that it is possible to transmit to the students in the different stages of their education is analyzed and related to the cognitive capacity of the students.

Palabras clave : education; science; materials; crystals; crystal habit.
