Underwood, Sonia M.; Posey, Lynmarie A.; Herrington, Deborah G.; Carmel, Justin H.; Cooper, Melanie M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
As chemists, we understand that science is more than a set of disconnected facts. It is a way of investigating and understanding our natural world that involves things like asking questions, analyzing data, identifying patterns, constructing explanations, developing and using models, and applying core concepts to other situations. This paper uses…

Sereda, Grigoriy – Journal of Chemical Education, 2005
The main classes of inorganic compounds is presented to students as a two-dimensional chart and one coordinate of the chart corresponds to the acidic equivalent while the other corresponds to the number of bound water molecules. The chart is intended for those students who can assign a compound to a particular class and can be used at different…

Tai, Robert H.; Ward, R. Bruce; Sadler, Philip M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2006
Do students who focus on some content areas in high school chemistry have an advantage over others in college chemistry? Published research on high school preparation for college science dates back as far as the 1920s, but results have been mixed. This manuscript seeks to answer this question through the use of a broad-based survey of 3521…

Bailey, Alla; Andrews, Lisa; Khot, Ameya; Rubin, Lea; Young, Jun; Allston, Thomas D.; Takacs, Gerald A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
Global interest in both renewable energies and reduction in emission levels has placed increasing attention on hydrogen-based fuel cells that avoid harm to the environment by releasing only water as a byproduct. Therefore, there is a critical need for education and workforce development in clean energy technologies. A new undergraduate laboratory…

de Melo, Nathalie F. S.; Fraceto, Leonardo F.; Grillo, Renato – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
Rapid growth in nanoscience and nanotechnology in recent years has been accompanied by studies of the toxicity and potential impacts of nanomaterials on human health and the environment, but less has been done concerning education in this area. There is therefore a need for courses that address this theme at universities worldwide, in order to…

Swinehart, D. F. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1985
A previous article stated that only the matrix method was powerful enough to balance a particular chemical equation. Shows how this equation can be balanced without using the matrix method. The approach taken involves writing partial mathematical reactions and redox half-reactions, and combining them to yield the final balanced reaction. (JN)

Mahalingam, Madhu; Schaefer, Fred; Morlino, Elisabeth – Journal of Chemical Education, 2008
We describe the implementation and effects of group problem solving in recitation sections associated with the general chemistry course at a small private science university. Recitation sections of approximately 45 students are used to supplement large (approximately 180 students) lecture sections. The primary goal of recitation is working in…

Auf der Heyde, Thomas P. E. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1990
This tutorial is intended to introduce factor and cluster analysis at a level that will afford the senior student or the practicing chemist some insights into the workings of the computer packages employing these methods, without being overwhelming with mathematical detail or process. Included are basic terms and working examples. (CW)

Miller, John B. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2000
Describes a physical system for demonstrating operators, eigenvalues, and superposition of states for a set of unusual wave functions. Uses candy to provide students with a visual and concrete picture of a superposition of states rather than an abstract plot of several overlaid mathematical states. (WRM)
