Ferguson, Robert; Bodner, George M. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2008
This paper reports results of a qualitative study of sixteen students enrolled in a second year organic chemistry course for chemistry and chemical engineering majors. The focus of the study was student use of the arrow-pushing formalism that plays a central role in both the teaching and practice of organic chemistry. The goal of the study was to…

Orgill, MaryKay; Sutherland, Aynsley – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2008
Both upper- and lower-level chemistry students struggle with understanding the concept of buffers and with solving corresponding buffer problems. While it might be reasonable to expect general chemistry students to struggle with this abstract concept, it is surprising that upper-level students in analytical chemistry and biochemistry continue to…

Cox, Charles T., Jr.; Cooper, Melanie M.; Pease, Rebecca; Buchanan, Krystal; Hernandez-Cruz, Laura; Stevens, Ron; Picione, John; Holme, Thomas – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2008
The use of web-based software and course management systems for the delivery of online assessments in the chemistry classroom is becoming more common. IMMEX software, like other web-based software, can be used for delivering assessments and providing feedback, but differs in that it offers additional features designed to give insights and promote…

Bennett, Stuart W. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2008
This paper examines the definition of a problem and at the process of problem solving. An analysis of a number of first and third year chemistry examination papers from English universities revealed that over ninety per cent of the "problems" fell into the "algorithm" category. Using Bloom's taxonomy and the same examination…

Evans, Karen L.; Yaron, David; Leinhardt, Gaea – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2008
Even after repeated instruction, first year college chemistry students are often unable to apply stoichiometry knowledge to equilibrium and acid-base chemistry problems. The dynamic and interactive capabilities of online technology may facilitate stoichiometry instruction that promotes more meaningful learning. This study compares a…

Marks, Ralf; Bertram, Stefanie; Eilks, Ingo – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2008
This paper discusses a chemistry lesson plan on potato crisps for 10th grade (age range 15-16) chemistry classes in Germany. The lesson plan focuses on the discussion about low-fat and low-carb diets as they are presented in everyday media such as TV or newspapers in Germany. The discussion follows a socio-critical and problem-oriented approach to…
