PEREZ CAMPILLO, Yosajandi  and  CHAMIZO GUERRERO, José Antonio. Curricular teaching chemistry analysis in Mexico in pre-university levels. Part II: The high school education. Educ. quím [online]. 2016, vol.27, n.3, pp.182-194. ISSN 0187-893X.

Today, there is an ongoing discussion about the need to change the science curriculum in pre-university levels, with the idea that they are not only addressed the disciplinary contents but also that the curriculum, contribute to the development of different thinking skills, management tools derived from technology and allows the student to better understand and apply knowledge within their own context. In the case of Mexico, due to our poor level of education expressed in various assessments, curriculum change is necessary and for this, the first step is to study the current situation in order to characterize the curriculum and find the strengths and areas opportunity. Therefore, this study is a curriculum analysis, specifically for teaching chemistry at the high school level, considering five specific programs of general chemistry from high school. To carry out this analysis considered five large axes: Nature of science, context, practical work, evaluation and substantive structure (including the paradigmatic structure).
