Bretz, Stacey Lowery; Fay, Michael; Bruck, Laura B.; Towns, Marcy H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2013
Forty chemistry faculty from American Chemical Society-approved departments were interviewed to determine their goals for undergraduate chemistry laboratory. Faculty were stratified by type of institution, departmental success with regard to National Science Foundation funding for laboratory reform, and level of laboratory course. Interview…

Burkholder, Phillip R.; Purser, Gordon H.; Cole, Renee S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2008
Intermolecular forces play an important role in many aspects of chemistry ranging from inorganic to biological chemistry. These forces dictate molecular conformation, species aggregation (including self-assembly), trends in solubility and boiling points, adsorption characteristics, viscosity, phase changes, surface tension, capillary action, vapor…

Walczak, Mary M.; Walczak, Daniel E. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2009
The importance of educating people to live in our increasingly science- and technology-rich world is well established. Many institutions require students to take one or more courses in science. Some nonscience majors are intrigued by this opportunity, while others are less inclined to take science classes. This project used a mixed-methods…

Brimhall, James; Naga, Sundar – Journal of Chemical Education, 2007
Many homes use pressurized diaphragm tanks for storage of water pumped from an underground well. These tanks are very carefully constructed to have separate internal chambers for the storage of water and for the air that provides the pressure. One might expect that the amount of water available for use from, for example, a 50-gallon tank would be…

Kozarich, John W. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2005
The American Chemical Society (ACS) is faced with developing the next generation of chemists with skills to compete successfully and to maintain the innovative edge of the American chemical enterprise as per a variable Elysian Field. The study shows disturbing decrease in the number of American students entering chemistry and science in general,…

Kumbar, Mahadev – Journal of Chemical Education, 2007
This paper synopsizes a series of nine tutorials investigating how various chemical processes can be shown to have musical aspects. Both chemistry and music share a common language: mathematics. Interesting music can be created as chemical reactions--mediated by instrumentation and mathematics (e.g., spectrometry and discrete Fourier…

Samet, Cindy; Higgins, Pamela J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2005
A course designed on the theme of Napoleon's Buttons, which states that there is a connection between the chemical structure of a compound and its pivotal moments in history affecting the development of society is explained. Students liked the book choice for the course because the focus was not on straight chemistry, but the intersection of…

Hohloch, Janice M.; Grove, Nathaniel; Bretz, Stacey Lowery – Journal of Chemical Education, 2007
A pre-service science and mathematics teacher participated in an action research project to reform a chemistry course required of elementary and middle childhood pre-service teachers. Activities to emphasize a hands-on approach to learning chemistry and to model teaching science through inquiry for these pre-service teachers are described. The…

Berger, Selman A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1983
Describes a forensic-oriented, college-level course in consumer chemistry. Includes course goals, topical outline, and list of chemical ingredients in consumer products useful for student research projects. The first section of the course focuses on mathematics since students in introductory courses may fear doing the most rudimentary mathematical…

Poce-Fatou, J. A.; Bethencourt-Nunez, M.; Moreno, C.; Pinto-Ganfornina, J. J.; Moreno-Dorado, F. J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2008
This article presents a lab experience to study detergency from a physicochemical point of view intended for undergraduate students. By means of a simple experimental device, we analyze the influence of the surfactant concentration in both distilled water and tap water. Our method is based on the measurement of diffuse reflectances of polyester…

Craney, C. L.; Armstrong, R. W. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1985
Analyzes the relationship between allied health students' (N=304) performance in general chemistry and the American Chemical Society's Toledo Exam (Form 1974), mathematical Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores, and high school chemistry grade. Also discusses use of findings to identify students who had a high risk of receiving low grades. (JN)

Arnquist, Isaac J.; Beussman, Douglas J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2007
Biological mass spectrometry is an important analytical technique in drug discovery, proteomics, and research at the biology-chemistry interface. Currently, few hands-on opportunities exist for undergraduate students to learn about this technique. With the 2002 Nobel Prize being awarded, in part, for the development of biological mass…

Greene, Jessica; Stockard, Jean; Lewis, Priscilla; Richmond, Geraldine – Journal of Chemical Education, 2010
For the field of chemistry to play a leading role in the science and technology sector of the U.S. economy it must recruit and retain the best and brightest talent from all segments of our society. Currently in the United States there is a significant disparity in the recruitment and retention of women relative to their male counterparts,…

Bucholtz, Kevin M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2011
For some students, organic chemistry can be a distant subject and unrelated to any courses they have seen in their college careers. To develop a more contextual learning experience in organic chemistry, an additional text, "Napoleon's Buttons: 17 Molecules That Changed History," by Penny Le Couteur and Jay Burreson, was incorporated as a…
