The Vinyl Chloride Problem: Several Routes to One Compound.
Nechvatal, A.; And Others
This unit is one of a group of units written to fit the Certificate of Sixth Year Studies (CSYS) chemistry course, but it could be used in most Sixth Form courses. These materials are designed for use in a group decision-making format with each of three groups representing a different manufacturing process which produces vinyl chloride. The unit contains three parts: (1) presentation of different manufacturing processes in separate groups; (2) combining the groups; and (3) further activities. Materials include: teacher packet (background, guidelines and answers); general student background information; information packets for each manufacturing group (with guidelines and considerations); combined group guidelines; and suggestions for further activities. Experience and interaction among students during decision making should help them understand that decisions in the chemical industry are multidisciplinary. (DH)
