In this study 4 ninth-grade books, 5 tenth-grade and 3 eleventh-grade chemistry textbooks, approved by the Ministry of Education to be used in high schools in 2005-2006 were analyzed in relation to analogy. In the course of the study, the frequency, type (illustrated, verbal) and model of analogies, which take place in every topic, were analyzed. In case of more than one model in the same book and topic, only one of them was taken as a sample. At the end of the analysis, it was determined that 84 analogies take place in 12 textbooks, of which 68 are illustrated and 16 are verbal. When contents of these 84 analogies were analyzed, it was observed that 15 different models were used. It was concluded that analogies are used without any remarks and that types of analogy per book are insufficient.
