Journal of Chemical Education, v86 n8 p946-949 Aug 2009
An innovative teaching and research partnership was developed in collaboration with public high school chemistry teachers from the Talawanda (Ohio) School District and faculty, staff, and students from Miami University. With the involvement of high school teachers, chemistry faculty, postdoctoral associates, and several graduate and undergraduate students, curricular materials were developed for teaching symmetry and X-ray crystallography in high school chemistry classrooms. An overview of the curricular materials developed and evaluation of the effectiveness of these materials is presented. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
