Abstract

This study better research aimed at strategic applications for exploring students’ learning performances with conceptual understanding and algorithmic proficiency by problem-solving maps and six major learning activities. A quasi-experimental method was employed to detect the outcomes of students’ compared intervention, together with two learning groups, the experimental group and control group. All results demonstrated that the experimental group students who used the strategic applications showed better learning performances than those of the control group students. The experimental group students with more cognitive competency presented significant achievements and larger effect sizes after their two module executions of gas chemistry program. Moreover, these demonstrations were predominated with students’ conceptual and algorithmic learning developments in chemistry. The experimental group students witnessed a new advancement of self-performed modules to promote their feedback and intelligent analyses.
