Polarimeter as a Teaching Tool

T. Portada and T. Klačić


Croatian schools have a problem with insufficient representation of the experiments in chemistry education. Given the fact that many high schools are equipped with a polarimeter, we made an overview of the learning activities that can be accomplished with a polarimeter. These activities are presented starting from the simplest that are appropriate for all students within regular classes, to more complex, which can be run in the school chemistry groups, to the most demanding, suitable for work with students who are preparing for chemistry competitions in the category of individual students works.
