Kizilaslan, Aydin; Sozbilir, Mustafa; Zorluoglu, Seraceddin Levent – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Science education could be made more accessible to students with visual impairments through collaboration and specific adaptation in both the science classrooms and laboratories. For example, by providing simple adaptations or doing some essential modifications, students can gain experience with measuring, balancing, and weighing a variety of…

DeKorver, Brittland K.; Choi, Mark; Towns, Marcy – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
Chemical demonstration shows are a popular form of informal science education (ISE), employed by schools, museums, and other institutions in order to improve the public's understanding of science. Just as teachers employ formative and summative assessments in the science classroom to evaluate the impacts of their efforts, it is important to assess…

C¸etin, Pinar Seda; Eymur, Gülüzar – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
In this study, we employed a new instructional model that helps students develop scientific writing and presentation skills. Argument-driven inquiry (ADI) is one of the most novel instructional models that emphasizes the role of argumentation and inquiry in science education equally. This is an exploratory study where five ADI lab activities take…

Woelk, Klaus – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
In a classroom or take-home activity, students are challenged to write their name as a combination of chemical-element symbols and calculate "their" molar mass. Age-appropriate versions ranging from middle school to entry-level college classes are discussed. Acceptable molar-mass suggestions may be used in a competition for the heaviest…

Kuntzleman, Thomas S.; Ford, Nathan; No, Jin-Hwan; Ott, Mark E. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
Everyone enjoys seeing the cloudy white fog generated when solid carbon dioxide (dry ice) is placed in water. Have you ever wondered what physical and chemical processes occur to produce this fog? When asked this question, many chemical educators suggest that the fog is produced when atmospheric water vapor condenses on cold carbon dioxide gas…
