Ferreiro-González, Marta; Amores-Arrocha, Antonio; Espada-Bellido, Estrella; Aliaño-Gonzalez, María José; Vázquez-Espinosa, Mercedes; González-de-Peredo, Ana V.; Sancho-Galán, Pau; Álvarez-Saura, José Ángel; Barbero, Gerardo F.; Cejudo-Bastante, Cristina – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
"Escape ClassRoom "CSI 1.0"" is an educational escape room proposed as an interactive analytical chemistry exercise for the evaluation of undergraduate students at the end of the subject. This approach is a new form of live action learning activity in which the students have to solve an analytical problem, namely, "an…

Mutambuki, Jacinta M.; Fynewever, Herb; Douglass, Kevin; Cobern, William W.; Obare, Sherine O. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Integrating authentic research-based experiences that mimic real-world scientific practices and relevance to student personal life into a chemistry curriculum can make abstract chemical principles more palpable to students. Unfortunately, many reported research-based experiences chemistry laboratory experiments lack relevance to a student's…

Boyd-Kimball, Debra; Miller, Keith R. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Laboratory courses are often designed using step-by-step protocols which encourage students to conduct experiments without thinking about what they are doing or why they are doing it. Such course design limits the growth of our students as scientists and can make it more difficult for a student to transition to the expectations of a research…

Bhattacharyya, Gautam; Harris, Michael S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
We report our research of seven pairs of students enrolled in the second semester of sophomore-level organic chemistry as they attempted to describe (in their own words) and draw, respectively, three electron-pushing diagrams of three-step reaction mechanisms. The tasks' objective was to accurately reproduce the diagrams based solely on the…

Carmel, Justin H.; Ward, Joseph S.; Cooper, Melanie M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
One of the most mystifying products on the market for people at any age is the glow stick: a plastic tube that, when snapped, creates a flood of bright, brilliantly colored light without the use of electricity or significant production of heat. In this case, the chemiluminescence reaction also provides an exciting phenomenon through which we can…

Christiansen, Michael A.; Lambert, Alyssia M.; Nadelson, Louis S.; Dupree, Kami M.; Kingsford, Trish A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
We recently shared our design of a two semester flipped organic chemistry course in which we gave students in-class quizzes to incentivize attendance and watching the lecture videos in advance. With a second iteration, we planned to make the video-watching experience more engaging. We accordingly hypothesized that if students completed short…

Ro¨sch, Esther S.; Helmerdig, Silke – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
Early photography processes were predestined to combine chemistry and art. William Henry Fox Talbot is one of the early photography pioneers. In 2-3 day workshops, design students without a major background in chemistry are able to define a reproducible protocol for Talbot's gallic acid containing calotype process. With the experimental concept…

Warfa, Abdi-Rizak M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
A meta-analysis of recent quantitative studies that examine the effects of cooperative learning (CL) on achievement outcomes in chemistry is presented. Findings from 25 chemical education studies involving 3985 participants (N[subscript treatment] = 1,845; N[subscript control] = 2,140) and published since 2001 show positive association between…

Svechkarev, Denis; Grygorovych, Oleksiy V. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
With more than 20 years of history, the Tournament of Young Chemists is an innovative, cross-disciplinary competition that promulgates the everyday life of scientists into the classrooms and on the contest stage. Original, open-type problems, unrestricted access to scientific data sources, and personal interaction with researchers from different…

Campbell, Michael G.; Powers, Tamara M.; Zheng, Shao-Liang – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
Implementing the case study method in a practical X-ray crystallography course designed for graduate or upper-level undergraduate chemistry students is described. Compared with a traditional lecture format, assigning small groups of students to examine literature case studies encourages more active engagement with the course material and…

Wilson, Sarah Beth; Varma-Nelson, Pratibha – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
Peer-led team learning (PLTL) research has expanded from its roots in program evaluation of student success measures in Workshop Chemistry to a spectrum of research questions and qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods study approaches. In order to develop recommendations for PLTL research and propose best practices for faculty who will…

Kurushkin, Mikhail; Mikhaylenko, Maria – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
An educational card game, "Chemical Alias," has been developed as an alternative method of reviewing students' knowledge of nomenclature. In contrast to conventional tests, this highly competitive activity is a fun and effective way to examine and reinforce nomenclature. The students play in pairs, using Clark's famous spiral arrangement…

Brenner, Ryan K.; Hess, Kenneth R.; Morford, Jennifer L. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
A laboratory experiment was designed for upper-level students in a Chemical Analysis course to illustrate the theoretical and practical applications of 0.8% agarose gel electrophoresis and to reinforce an understanding of weak acids/bases using easy-to-visualize pH indicators. The careful choice of indicators included acid and base types with…

Orsini, Gabriele – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
The ever-increasing impact of molecular quantum calculations over chemical sciences implies a strong and urgent need for the elaboration of proper teaching strategies in university curricula. In such perspective, this paper proposes an extensive project for a student-driven, cooperative, from-scratch implementation of a general Hartree-Fock…

Gonzalez, Elizabeth; Dolino, Drew; Schwartzenburg, Danielle; Steiger, Michelle A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
A laboratory experiment was developed to introduce students in either an organic chemistry or biochemistry lab course to two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance (2D NMR) spectroscopy using simple biomolecules. The goal of this experiment is for students to understand and interpret the information provided by a 2D NMR spectrum. Students are…
