Conceptests for a Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics Course
Falconer, John L.
Chemical Engineering Education, v41 n2 p107-114 Spr 2007
Examples of conceptests and suggestions for preparing them for use in an undergraduate, chemical engineering thermodynamics course are presented. Conceptests, combined with hand-held transmitters (clickers), is an effective method to engage students in class. This method motivates students, improves their functional understanding of thermodynamics, and makes the class more enjoyable for both students and instructor.
