Rodriguez, Jon-Marc G.; Santos-Diaz, Stephanie; Bain, Kinsey; Towns, Marcy H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018

This work is part of a larger project that seeks to understand how students blend (integrate) chemistry and mathematics as they work through chemical kinetics problems. Here we focus on four students from our larger sample: two students that demonstrated more instances of blending chemistry and mathematics in their interviews ("high-frequency…

Kurushkin, Mikhail; Kurushkin, Dmitry – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018

A novel educational chart that represents the acid--base behavior of 100 s-, p-, d-, and f-element oxides depending on the element's electronegativity and oxidation state was designed. An updated periodic table of said oxides was developed. A mathematical criterion based on the chart was derived which allows prediction of the behavior of…

Srnec, Matthew N.; Upadhyay, Shiv; Madura, Jeffrey D. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016

In this technology report, a tool is provided for teaching reciprocal space to undergraduates in physical chemistry and materials science courses. Reciprocal space plays a vital role in understanding a material's electronic structure and physical properties. Here, we provide an example based on previous work in the "Journal of Chemical…

Seethaler, Sherry; Czworkowski, John; Wynn, Lynda – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018

Change over time is a crosscutting theme in the sciences that is pivotal to reaction kinetics, an anchoring concept in undergraduate chemistry, and students' struggles with rates of change are well-documented. Informed by the education scholarship in chemistry, physics, and mathematics, a research team with members from complementary disciplinary…

Koopman, Lodewijk; Brouwer, Natasa; Heck, Andre; Buma, Wybren Jan – Journal of Chemical Education, 2008

Proper mathematical skills are important for every science course and mathematics-intensive chemistry courses rely on a sound mathematical pre-knowledge. In the first-year quantum chemistry course at this university, it was noticed that many students lack basic mathematical knowledge. To tackle the mathematics problem, a remedial mathematics…

Ogilvie, J. F.; Monagan, M. B. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2007

The teaching of mathematics courses to chemistry students that is strongly based on symbolic computation and allows an instructor to explore a topic or principle is reviewed. The mathematical software available, nominally for symbolic computation associated with numerical and graphical capabilities are highly developed and provides an invaluable…

Komperda, Regis; Pentecost, Thomas C.; Barbera, Jack – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018

This methodological paper examines current conceptions of reliability in chemistry education research (CER) and provides recommendations for moving beyond the current reliance on reporting coefficient alpha (a) as reliability evidence without regard to its appropriateness for the research context. To help foster a better understanding of…

Dori, Yehudit Judy; Dangur, Vered; Avargil, Shirly; Peskin, Uri – Journal of Chemical Education, 2014

Chemistry students in Israel have two options for studying chemistry: basic or honors (advanced placement). For instruction in high school honors chemistry courses, we developed a module focusing on abstract topics in quantum mechanics: Chemistry--From the Nanoscale to Microelectronics. The module adopts a visual-conceptual approach, which…

Raff, Lionel M.; Cannon, William R. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019

For 26 years, it has been assumed by some that the thermodynamics of open-system biochemical reactions must be executed by performing Legendre transformations on the terms involving the species whose concentrations are being held fixed. In contrast, standard nontransformed thermodynamics applies to chemical processes. However, it has recently been…

Bauer, Christina A.; Hamada, Terianne Y.; Kim, Hyesoo; Johnson, Mathew R.; Voegtle, Matthew J.; Emrick, Matthew S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018

Quantum dots (QDs) are useful for demonstrating the particle-in-a-box (PIB) model utilized in quantum chemistry, and can readily be applied to a discussion of both thermodynamics and kinetics in an undergraduate laboratory setting. Modifications of existing synthetic procedures were used to create QDs of different sizes and compositions (CdS…

Bain, Kinsey; Rodriguez, Jon-Marc G.; Towns, Marcy H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018

Zero-order systems provide an interesting opportunity for students to think about the underlying mechanism behind the physical phenomena being modeled. The work reported here is part of a larger study that seeks to characterize how students integrate chemistry and mathematics in the context of chemical kinetics. Thirty-six general chemistry…

Miller, Tierney C.; Richardson, John N.; Kegerreis, Jeb S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016

This manuscript presents an exercise that utilizes mathematical software to explore Fourier transforms in the context of model quantum mechanical systems, thus providing a deeper mathematical understanding of relevant information often introduced and treated as a "black-box" in analytical chemistry courses. The exercise is given to…

Journal of Chemical Education, 2004

The National Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematical Education Digital Library (NSDL), inaugurated in December 2002, is developed to promote science education on a comprehensive scale. The Journal of Chemical, Education (JCE) Digital Library, incorporated into NSDL, contains its own collections of digital resources for chemistry…

Pollock, David W.; Truong, Giovanna T.; Bonjour, Jessica L.; Frost, John A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018

Solubility is frequently introduced at the high school and introductory college levels through the symbolic domain using net ionic equations and solubility product constants. Students may become proficient with spectator ion cancellation and skilled with algorithmic mathematical applications of solubility without obtaining a deeper understanding…

An interactive poster exhibited at two poster sessions at the Fall 2016 American Chemical Society (ACS) National Meeting was used as a vehicle to learn about ACS members' concerns and needs related to research ethics and to identify opportunities for engagement of the Society by the Committee on Ethics (ETHX) and others in terms of ethics…
