W12: Card Games to Teach Ionic Compound Nomenclature

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

In this workshop, participants will play a multi-level card game designed to help introductory chemistry students learn how to read and write the names and formulas for common acids and ionic compounds. The instructional materials were developed by the workshop organizers for use in their high school and college introductory chemistry courses. After watching a short, 10-min video about the game, workshop participants will divide into groups of 3-4 to play the game. Participants will be asked to critique the card game for use in different educational settings. At the end of the workshop, each participant will receive a complimentary laminated game set. The game set includes the instructional video and the easily-modified document files for reprinting and classroom use.

I enjoy discussing ways to make topics in general, organic, and biochemistry more exciting, engaging, and relevant for both high school and undergraduate students.
