ALCHEM; Exercises in Basic Chemical Concepts; A Computer-Assisted Instruction Program for General Chemistry.
Lower, Stephen K.
Twenty-one modules from ALCHEM, a computer-assisted instruction program, are presented. ALCHEM consists of a set of modular programs which are used at Simon Fraser University to cover some basic concepts introduced in an introductory college-level general chemistry course. The interactive exercises do not furnish background information or introduce new material, but serve to help students to become more aware of the meaning of basic chemical concepts, their interrelationships, and their applicability to practical situations. Although ALCHEM is available as a course by itself, its main use is as a depository for computer-assisted instructional (CAI) modules which are copies onto other CAI programs designed for specific chemistry courses. Material developed prior to July 1973 was in the Coursewriter III language; future material will be written in York/APL. (Author/OB)
