There are large differences between secondary vocational school and senior high school. Lacking systematic and intensive training on the basic knowledge for the vocational secondary-undergraduate students, their theoretical thinking needs to be improved; however, they are strong in imaginal thinking due to the training in real work practices. Therefore, inquiry teaching method was adopted in inorganic chemistry course to help the students to "discover" some concepts and to better understand definitions and integrate principles to solve real problems. This course designed according to the characteristics of secondary vocational school is more benefitial to application-oriented vocational secondary-undergraduate students.

Key words: Vocational secondary-undergraduate education, Inorganic chemistry, Inquiry teaching method
