In the engineering inorganic chemistry course, the contents of structure of matter are very important. Because of the characteristics of structure of matter, such as high abstraction and logic, teaching this section becomes difficult in this course. This article makes an investigation on the differences in teaching contents between high school chemistry and engineering inorganic chemistry. Furthermore, some effective teaching methods including model-assisting teaching, employment of multimedia, history of discipline teaching and inquiry teaching have been explored in this article, which will be beneficial to the promotion of teaching effect of the related contents.

Key words: Engineering inorganic chemistry, Structure of matter, Teaching research
