S16: The Analytical Classroom: Teaching Beyond Quantitative Analysis

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Quantitative Analysis is often the bane of lower-division undergraduate chemical education, because students have a hard time seeing beyond the fairly rigorous calculations and titrations. This course is often the first taste that a Chemistry major gets of what is really expected of them in terms of independent thinking and problem solving, as well as higher-level writing and lab skills. This symposium will explore new strategies to modernize the course, as well as methods to provide context from outside the classroom. Specifically in the lecture, how are instructors using journal articles, descriptions of modern analytical techniques, writing skills, and problem solving to help students see the utility in this course. In lab, how are instructors going beyond the traditional titration experiments and providing real-world problem solving models, or real-world experimental contexts, as well as intensive writing workshops.
