ABSTRACT
The article discusses a teacher research project in California that was designed to help improve high school students' understanding of the gas laws in a chemistry class. The teachers learned that the students' understanding of gas laws was limited which is attributed to their difficulty in manipulating equations. Compounding effect was identified by the teachers as the possible root cause of students' limited understanding.
