Aubrecht, Katherine B.; Dori, Yehudit Judy; Holme, Thomas A.; Lavi, Rea; Matlin, Stephen A.; Orgill, MaryKay; Skaza-Acosta, Heather – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
One challenge associated with introducing systems thinking in chemistry classrooms is the increase in content complexity that students face when they engage in this type of approach. Placing core chemical ideas within larger systems has promise, as long as students are not overwhelmed by the added complexity. Although there are many potential…

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…

Reynders, Gil; Suh, Erica; Cole, Renée S.; Sansom, Rebecca L. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Laboratory coursework is widely considered to be an integral part of chemistry undergraduate degree programs, although its impact on students' chemistry knowledge is largely unsubstantiated. Laboratory experiences provide opportunities to learn skills beyond chemistry content knowledge, such as how to use scientific instrumentation appropriately,…

Kinnaman, Laura J.; Roller, Rachel M.; Miller, Carrie S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
A computational chemistry exercise for the undergraduate physical chemistry laboratory is described. In this exercise, students use the molecular dynamics package Amber to generate trajectories of bulk liquid water for 4 different water models (TIP3P, OPC, SPC/E, and TIP4Pew). Students then process the trajectory to calculate structural (radial…

Matsumoto, Paul S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2014
The article describes the use of Mathematica, a computer algebra system (CAS), in a high school chemistry course. Mathematica was used to generate a graph, where a slider controls the value of parameter(s) in the equation; thus, students can visualize the effect of the parameter(s) on the behavior of the system. Also, Mathematica can show the…

Thalos, Mariam – Science & Education, 2013
Chemistry possesses a distinctive theoretical lens--a distinctive set of theoretical concerns regarding the dynamics and transformations of a perplexing variety of organic and nonorganic substances--to which it must be faithful. Even if it is true that chemical facts bear a special (reductive) relationship to physical facts, nonetheless it will…

Thompson, Marcus J.; Messina, Michael – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
The Franck-Condon Principle (FCP), the key concept for describing vibronic spectra, results from the large disparity between the time scales of electrons and nuclei in molecules. Yet in an undergraduate lecture, the FCP is nearly always rationalized from a time independent quantum mechanical viewpoint, due to students' lack of knowledge of time…

Kelley, Elizabeth W. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, education at all levels has temporarily shifted to remote learning, hobbling an integral component of chemistry courses: the laboratory. The chemistry lab is crucial for developing student engagement and learning with hands-on, relevant experiments in a socially dynamic classroom setting. The transition to remote…

Perez-Rivero, Mayra Guadalupe; Obaya Valdivia, Adolfo Eduardo; Giamatteo, Lucila; Montaño-Osorio, Carlos; Vargas-Rodríguez, Yolanda M. – Science Education International, 2019
With the aim of improving the teaching and learning of chemistry functional groups, a didactic strategy was designed based on real-life situations. This strategy was used at the high school level, in the subject of "Chemistry II." One group of students was taught functional groups using interactive board software through different…

Camrud, Evan; Turner, Daniel B. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
Numerous computational and spectroscopic studies have demonstrated the decisive role played by nonadiabatic coupling in photochemical reactions. Nonadiabatic coupling drives photochemistry when potential energy surfaces are nearly degenerate at avoided crossings or truly degenerate at unavoided crossings. The dynamics induced by nonadiabatic…

Haworth, Naomi L.; Martin, Lisandra L. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
A series of computer-based laboratory experiments have been developed to aid undergraduate students in appreciating the three-dimensional nature of chemistry and biochemistry. Both lower- and upper-division experiments have been developed. Students are introduced to the use of ChemDraw for the production of professional-quality molecular…

Franco, Jimmy; Provencher, Brian A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
In recent years, researchers have worked diligently to identify more effective means of facilitating student learning. Some promising pedagogical techniques that have emerged include the flipped-class model and test-enhanced learning. These pedagogical strategies have been incorporated into a multitouch book. A multitouch book is a dynamic…

Mundy, Christine; Potgieter, Marietjie – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2019
In this study, action research was used over two years to refine the implementation of process-oriented guided inquiry learning for chemistry students in an academic development programme at a research-intensive South African university. Students' responses to guided inquiry were collected based on a three-pillar framework underpinned by cognitive…

Wheeldon, R.; Atkinson, R.; Dawes, A.; Levinson, R. – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2012
Background and purpose: Chemistry examinations can favour the deployment of algorithmic procedures like Le Chatelier's Principle (LCP) rather than reasoning using chemical principles. This study investigated the explanatory resources which high school students use to answer equilibrium problems and whether the marks given for examination answers…

Pilarz, Matthew – ProQuest LLC, 2013
For this study, a research-based lab module was implemented in two high school chemistry classes for the purpose of examining classroom dynamics throughout the process of students completing the module. A research-based lab module developed for use in undergraduate laboratories by the Center for Authentic Science Practice in Education (CASPiE) was…
