Kumasaki, Mieko; Shoji, Takuro; Wu, Tsung-Chih; Soontarapa, Khantong; Arai, Mitsuru; Mizutani, Takaaki; Okada, Ken; Shimizu, Yoshitada; Sugano, Yasuhiro – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
"Manga" are graphic novels that are considered to have the potential to effectively convey concepts and engage readers. The efficacy of "manga" has been validated for chemical safety education to students in three universities in Japan, Taiwan, and Thailand. Students were asked to examine a photo to identify hazards and…

Jones, Oliver A. H.; Spichkova, Maria; Spencer, Michelle J. S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Mobile technology is increasingly prevalent in higher education. Chemistry-related software applications (apps) on touchscreen computers are emerging as a popular platform in many areas, including in the chemistry classroom. In this work, a new game-based app designed for hand-held and portable touch-controlled devices is presented. Chirality-2…

Newman, Karla – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Almost all commercial quadrupole ICP-MS instruments use collision/reaction cells to either attenuate spectral interferences or shift the analyte of interest to an interference-free "m/z" (e.g., by O addition). A laboratory practical was developed to introduce the students to the basic operating principles of ICP-MS using a hands-on…

Diawati, Chansyanah; Liliasari; Setiabudi, Agus; Buchari – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Students learned the principles and practice of photometry through project-based learning. They addressed the challenge of measuring the unknown concentration of a colored substance using a photometer they were required to design, build, and test. Then, they used that instrument to carry out the experiment and fulfill the challenge. A photometer…

Galloway, Kelli R.; Leung, Min Wah; Flynn, Alison B. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
To explore the differences between how organic chemistry students and organic chemistry professors think about organic chemistry reactions, we administered a card sort task to participants with a range of knowledge and experience levels. Beginning students created a variety of categories ranging from structural similarities to process oriented…

Perez-Arribas, Luis Vicente; Leon-González, María Eugenia; Rosales-Conrado, Noelia – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
With the final objective of using computational and chemometrics tools in the chemistry studies, this paper shows the methodology and interpretation of the Principal Component Analysis (PCA) using pollution data from different cities. This paper describes how students can obtain data on air quality and process such data for additional information…

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…

Cresswell, Sarah L.; Loughlin, Wendy A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
In this paper, insight into forensic science students' experiences of a case-based scenario with an interdisciplinary guided-inquiry experience in chemistry and biology is presented. Evaluation of student experiences and interest showed that the students were engaged with all aspects of the case-based scenario, including the curriculum theory…

Pearson, Russell J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
Different approaches to the use of "clickers" (also known as student response systems) were introduced to a cohort of 127 students over a two-year period with the aim of making students think more deeply in-class about their chemistry knowledge. Student performance was monitored, and individual, anonymous student feedback was frequently…

Chan, Chin Han; Fellows, Christopher M.; Hess, Michael; Hiorns, Roger; Hoven, Voravee P.; Russell, Gregory T.; dos Santos, Cla´udio G.; S?turcova´, Adriana; Theato, Patrick – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
Polymer education relies on generally agreed terminology and nomenclature rules. The Polymer Division of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) generates and recommends such rules for naming processes and materials in polymer science. It is the goal of IUPAC that these recommendations be applied in polymer science curricula…

Jolley, Dianne F.; Wilson, Stephen R.; Kelso, Celine; O'Brien, Glennys; Mason, Claire E. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
This project utilizes visual and critical thinking approaches to develop a higher-education synergistic prelab training program for a large second-year undergraduate analytical chemistry class, directing more of the cognitive learning to the prelab phase. This enabled students to engage in more analytical thinking prior to engaging in the…
