Pronchik, Jeremy N.; Williams, Brian W. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2003
Describes an alternative approach to finding exactly solvable, one-dimensional quantum mechanical potentials. Differs from the usual approach in that instead of starting with a particular potential and seeking solutions to the related Schrodinger equations, it begins with known solutions to second-order ordinary differential equations and seeks to…

Laroche, Lyubov Hoffman; Wulfsberg, Gary; Young, Barbara – Journal of Chemical Education, 2003
Recommends using educational technology to present images of chemical reactions to students instead of doing time-consuming live demonstrations. Uses a VCR to show hazardous chemical reactions, give instructions to organize students into groups, think about data, draw conclusions, and design an experiment. Reports that the quality of learning from…

Phelps, Amy J.; Lee, Cherin – Journal of Chemical Education, 2003
Notes that beginning teachers mimic the teaching of their college instructors; however, not many of the strategies students observe and mimic are supported by recent reform efforts. Proposes that college and university science instructors must recognize their impact on science teacher education and adjust their strategies to be consistent with the…
