Brown, Corina E.; Henry, Melissa L. M.; Hyslop, Richard M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
This study explores the acid-base topic in the context of a chemistry course taken as a prerequisite for a baccalaureate nursing program. Core findings were derived from semistructured interviews with experts in the areas of chemistry and nursing, and a multiple university survey of experts' opinions. The acid-base topic was reviewed and evaluated…

Timmer, Brien J. J.; Schaufelberger, Frederik; Hammarberg, Daniel; Franzén, Johan; Ramström, Olof; Dinér, Peter – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Green chemistry and sustainable development have become increasingly important topics for the education of future chemists. The cross-disciplinary nature of green chemistry and sustainable development often means these subjects are taught in conjunction with other subjects, such as organic chemistry and chemical engineering. Herein, a…

Srinivasan, Shalini; Reisner, Barbara A.; Smith, Sheila R.; Stewart, Joanne L.; Johnson, Adam R.; Lin, Shirley; Marek, Keith A.; Nataro, Chip; Murphy, Kristen L.; Raker, Jeffrey R. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
ACS Examinations provide a lens through which to examine historical changes in topic coverage via analyses of course-specific examinations. This study is an extension of work completed previously by the ACS Exams Research Staff and collaborators in general chemistry, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry to explore content changes in the…

Smith, K. Christopher; Sepulveda, Adrian – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
In this study 635 general chemistry I and general chemistry II students completed a 40-item Likert-scale survey on their opinions of various practices, including some academically dishonest practices, that might occur in the general chemistry laboratory. The practices surveyed were focused on areas including preparation before coming to the…

Freire, Melquesedeque; Talanquer, Vicente; Amaral, Edenia – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Understanding the nature of chemical thinking and action, as well as their application and impact on our world should be central goals of chemistry education at all educational levels. However, traditional school chemistry is still mostly focused on having students learn the body of declarative knowledge built over the years in the discipline.…

Trate, Jaclyn M.; Geissinger, Peter; Blecking, Anja; Murphy, Kristen L. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
One theme that both the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the National Research Council (NRC) agree pervades any science course (and specifically chemistry) is scale. Despite the fact that scale concepts and skills are at the core of a student's scientific literacy, scale or the skills related to understanding quantity…

Smith, Andri L.; Paddock, Jean R.; Vaughan, Joel M.; Parkin, David W. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
The challenge in chemistry courses for nonscience majors (such as nursing majors) is not that the students cannot learn chemistry but that they "think" they cannot learn chemistry. With this in mind, the authors' goal was to create a learning environment in which students would feel motivated to learn and would gain confidence in their…

Berisha, Fatlume – Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal, 2020
Although several reforms have shifted the direction of education, a debate on the strengths and limitations of science education in Kosovo has not yet been initiated. The present article analyses the development of chemistry education in Kosovo and encourages questions that could shape science education practices in general. In particular, the…

Provencher, Brian A.; Franco, Jimmy; Fernandez, Anthony L.; Theberge, Stephen; Zwickau, Brenda – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Educators are constantly looking to improve their pedagogical strategies. This can range from teaching strategies for a specific topic to holistic curriculum changes. Recently, the approach that chemistry departments have chosen to deliver their introductory courses has garnished increasing attention from educators. Our department recently…

Hermanns, Jolanda; Schmidt, Bernd – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Stepped supporting tools were developed and used in the university seminar Organic Chemistry taken by nonmajor chemistry students, which supported self-regulated learning. These supporting tools were also used for accompanying homework, which included a QR code that led to additional supporting tools. The application of stepped supporting tools in…

Wiggins, Marcie B.; Heath, Emma; Alcántara-García, Jocelyn – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
The interface of art and science provides a broad range of educational and collaborative projects at various learning stages. Therefore, the use of historic artists' materials for teaching chemistry is receiving more attention. We prepared and used copper acetate (verdigris pigment) for a series of interconnected, lab-based activities, which can…

Schafer, Adam G. L.; Yezierski, Ellen J. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
High school chemistry teachers struggle to use assessment results to inform instruction. In the absence of expert assistance, teachers often look to their peers for guidance and support; however, little is known about the assessment beliefs and practices of high school chemistry teachers or the discourse mechanisms used as teachers support one…

Crandell, Olivia M.; Kouyoumdjian, Hovig; Underwood, Sonia M.; Cooper, Melanie M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
The study presented here is a follow-up to a previous report in which we investigated how general-chemistry students in a transformed curriculum reason about simple acid-base reactions. In the present study, we use and adapt the previously developed coding scheme for a longitudinal study in which we follow students from general chemistry through…

Croisant, Michael; Bretz, Stacey Lowery; Konkolewicz, Dominik – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
The ACS Guidelines for bachelor's degrees in chemistry call for the curriculum to include polymer chemistry principles and the synthesis of different classes of macromolecules. Organic chemistry can provide an important introduction to polymer chemistry principles, and photochemically induced radical polymerization is one method for generating…

Pazicni, Samuel; Flynn, Alison B. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Systems thinking approaches underscore a holistic view of the components comprising a dynamic system, including their connections and interdependencies as well as their interactions with other systems. Compelling international calls have been made recently to infuse chemistry education with systems thinking so as to not only better illustrate…
