Roff, Lori; Stringer, Lola
The food science course developed in Missouri combines basic scientific and mathematics principles in a hands-on instructional format as a part of the family and consumer sciences education curriculum. Throughout the course, students conduct controlled experiments and use scientific laboratory techniques and information to explore the biological and chemical properties of food and its functions. The modules in this resource guide were developed to supplement instruction in the food science course. The guide contains nine modules that cover the following topics: (1) food science; (2) the scientific method; (3) organizations and resources; (4) food safety and sanitation; (5) HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points); (6) Material Safety Data Sheets; (7) vitamins and minerals; (8) solutions; and (9) food additives. Each module contains some or all of the following components of a unit of instruction: overview, teacher background information, learning activities, laboratory experiments, "for teacher use" pages answers, questions and conclusions, assessments, and instructor sheets.
