The aim of this study is to evaluate the implementation of compound unit by chemistry teachers at 9(th) grade in the chemistry curriculum; which was started to be implemented in the present academic year (2008-2009). The study was carried out with 14 chemistry teachers in different schools, who are active in teaching secondary education 9(th) grade chemistry, in the autumn semester. Data in the investigation was obtained by implementing a semi-structured interview to 5 chemistry teachers and by implementing the evaluation scale to 14 chemistry teachers. The data were analyzed and compared according to the factors as the faculty each of the teachers graduated, type of school they are working and their year of experience. Besides, similar statements of the teachers were given in one sentence summarizing the views while different statements were quoted without adding any comments during the analysis of the interviews. Some recommendations were then presented on the basis of the findings of the study. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved
