Singhal, Ishu; Balaji, B. S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
An open-source repository of basic building block models design files for writing chemical formulas, equations, and ionic states are provided. Writing chemical symbols, molecules, and ions in their correct oxidation state or valency in chemical equations is an essential and integral part of learning. For a visually impaired student, it is very…

Wong, Clarence Wei Wen; Goh, Hui Yi; Ong, Yue Ying – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
The skills and knowledge of the employers of chemists have been explored in varying degrees of specificity. Some studies have argued that the current university curriculum does not prepare students for modern industry adequately, while others have provided an overview of the job market for graduates with a bachelor's degree in chemistry. In order…

Sjo¨stro¨m, Jesper; Eilks, Ingo; Talanquer, Vicente – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
The decisions and actions that chemistry educators make regarding why, what, how, and when to teach certain content or implement a specific instructional activity are often guided, but also constrained, by explicit or implicit "didaktik models". These types of models direct our attention and actions when designing curricula, planning for…

Heinrich, Benedikt; Graulich, Nicole; Vázquez, Olalla – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
The complexity of the world's current grand challenges demands interdisciplinary approaches. The education of future scientists must cross the silos of the traditional disciplines; however, there is still a strong reluctance to tear such walls down. Here, we describe an integrative chemical biology course focused on epigenetics that strives to…

Noei, Nima; Imani, Iman Mohammadi; Wilson, Lee D.; Azizian, Saeid – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A low-cost and simple setup to measure the densities of liquids is introduced herein. The results and reliability of this setup were evaluated for pure liquids, water-ethanol binary mixtures, and aqueous NaCl solutions. The constructed densitometer provided density values with acceptable relative errors (less than ±3.0%), which were compared to…

Fedick, Patrick W.; Schrader, Robert L.; Ayrton, Stephen T.; Pulliam, Christopher J.; Cooks, R. Graham – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Process analytical technologies (PATs) are used in the pharmaceutical and other industries to monitor chemical processes in real-time with analytical instrumentation. Each PAT analyzer brings its own advantages and disadvantages to the process, and multiplexing PAT analyzers can be advantageous as they can provide confirmatory measurements and…

Kwan, Ann H.; Mobli, Mehdi; Schirra, Horst J.; Wilson, Jennifer C.; Jones, Oliver A. H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Magnetic resonance is a powerful technology that has had a major impact across the physical, life, and medical sciences, from chemistry to medical imaging, with ever-expanding applications in new areas as diverse as mining and food science. It is, however, also a difficult subject to teach, as the theory is complex and requires some familiarity…

Kellamis, Natalia M.; Yezierski, Ellen J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
With the introduction of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), curriculum and professional development have had to change rapidly to fit the new standards. To aid with those changes, the EQuIP rubric was released as a guide for NGSS alignment. This study aims to evaluate lesson plans developed through the Target Inquiry project to…

Chiu, Mei-Hung; Mamlok-Naman, Rachel; Apotheker, Jan – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Chemistry plays an important role in developing scientific theories to describe, explain, and predict the physical world and to produce useful products for improving quality of life throughout history. To arouse student awareness of the value and importance of learning chemistry and becoming chemistry literate, we propose an application of systems…

Ho, Felix M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Systems thinking encompasses a set of skills for understanding, analyzing, and working with systems consisting of multiple interconnected elements and exhibiting emergent properties. Such systems are all around us, and helping students to develop such skills is central to equipping them to tackle professional and societal challenges. While the…

Blatti, Jillian L.; Garcia, John; Cave, Danyal; Monge, Felix; Cuccinello, Anthony; Portillo, Jennifer; Juarez, Betsy; Chan, Ellen; Schwebel, Frieda – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Systems thinking, interdisciplinary research projects, and creative problem solving are ways to frame modern chemistry curricula to inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers, teachers, and citizens to use their skills and education to create a sustainable future. By integrating planetary boundaries, green chemistry, and the UN…

Murphy, Kathleen C.; Dilip, Meghna; Quattrucci, Joseph G.; Mitroka, Susan M.; Andreatta, Jeremy R. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A summer workshop was offered to inner-city high school students to explore the sustainability of their consumer choices using a systems thinking model. Students learned about related environmental or health issues due to the manufacturing, use, or disposal of common household products. Then, in the laboratory, they performed experiments to…

Bain, Kinsey; Rodriguez, Jon-Marc G.; Towns, Marcy H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Chemistry education research (CER) as a field is inherently interdisciplinary and has traditionally borrowed ideas, frameworks, and methodologies from other fields, such as anthropology, psychology, cognitive science, and science education more broadly. In this paper we encourage researchers to continue this tradition by utilizing the rich body of…

Scholes, Colin A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Indigenous Australians are significantly underrepresented in chemistry based professions, which arises from their low participation in physical science subjects in secondary and tertiary education. This is a multifaceted issue with a number of identified solutions, one of which is to link chemistry with aspects of Indigenous culture. Here, four…
