How does a nuclear reactor work? How is nylon formed? What is in my blood? This session will introduce activities from the new ChemConnections Activity Workbook that includes 59 classroom tested activities written in the context of societal and environmental issues. Derived from the ChemConnections modules, the collection of individual activities and laboratories allow real-world problems to be integrated into a broad range of teaching environments including lectures, recitations, and workshop based courses. Designed with attention to pedagogy and student learning styles, these activities introduce real-world applications utilizing a variety of methods including data analysis, laboratory, guided inquiry, and discovery. Ultimately these activities assist students in not only learning general chemistry, but also in understanding how chemistry relates to modern issues such as acid rain, nuclear energy, nutrition, and technology.
