Chemistry for the Life Sciences. An Instructor Resource Guide. Appendix to a Final Report on the Paraprofessional Rurally Oriented Family Home Health Training Program.
Odom, H. Clyde; Myer, Donna Foster
This instructor's resource guide, one in a series of products from a project to develop an associate degree program for paraprofessional rural family health promoters, deals with teaching chemistry for the life sciences. Covered in the first section of the volume are the role of chemistry in rural health promotional training, general objectives and recommendations for the instructor, laboratory recommendations, and references and suggested course tests. A series of unit overviews dealing with the following topics are presented: matter and measurement; the composition of matter; chemical bonding; compounds and chemical change; gases and respiration; water; solutions; acids, bases, and salts; nuclear chemistry and radiation; organic chemistry; hydrocarbons; oxygen derivatives of hydrocarbons; fats; carbohydrates; and proteins. Also included are a series of laboratory experiments dealing with dentistry and metric measure, chemical reactions and factors that affect their rate, the Charles Law, hydrates, principles of acid and base neutralization, radioactivity, reactions of alcohol, aspirin and oil of wintergreen, determination of Vitamin C, and powdered milk versus whole milk. A discussion of methods and materials for use in student evaluation and a description of other materials in the Family Home Health Training Program series conclude the guide. (MN)
