Abstract

Article is devoted to links of the block fundamental disciplines with general and special disciplines. The causes of worsening the relationship of knowledge and skills, acquired in the chemistry course in studying special subjects, was analized.

Objective: to analyze the reasons preventing connection of knowledge and skills obtained in the chemistry course in studying of special subjects.

Problems: 1) to analyze the reasons for the low motivation of students in studying chemistry for non-chemical specialties, 2) to identify areas for the implementation of interdisciplinary connections.

Object of research: increasing motivation in studying chemistry for university students of non-chemical specialties.

Subject of research: methods of teaching chemistry for non-chemical specialties.

Methods of research: the study of the works of domestic authors on interdisciplinary connections.

Results: identified the main reasons for the low motivation in the study of chemistry.

Conclusion: The knowledge and skills acquired through the study of chemistry should be used in other courses in specialized discipline. Chemistry should touted not only as the sum of the knowledge and skills of necessary for future specialist, but also as a means to achieve the formation of his intellectual abilities.
