Johnstone, A. H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Hypothesizes that overloading the working memory may leave no space for thought and organization such that faulty (or even no) learning takes place. Provides examples of this hypothesis and possible remedies. These remedies focus on design of laboratory manuals and equipment and on curriculum content order. (JN)

Herron, J. Dudley – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Examines how information from psychological and educational research was used to develop and implement a remedial chemistry course, focusing on the viewpoint of a learning process based on research in cognitive science. Comments on textbook selection, testing, scheduling, instructional strategies, and other areas are included. (JN)

Doyle, Michael P. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Discusses: (1) the conflict about the importance of research at predominantly undergraduate schools; (2) sources of funding for undergraduate research (several of which are targeted at predominantly undergraduate institutions); and (3) undergraduate research at doctoral-granting institutions. (JN)

Cary, William R. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Examines the present state and future of high school chemistry, and whether a crisis exists in chemistry at the high school level. Also proposes a new model for chemistry education and suggests that new materials and sufficient training and retraining are needed to implement new ideas and instructional strategies. (JN)

Brooks, David W. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Alternatives to traditional, large-class lecturing are discussed. They include using canned lectures, demonstrations and lecture experiments, computer simulations, problem-solving strategies, breaks during lectures, and movies. Moving out of large classrooms to laboratories and resource rooms (or giving an examination) is also suggested. (JN)

Pickering, Miles – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Factors affecting traditional laboratory instruction in chemistry are discussed. They include: responses to potential hazards in the undergraduate laboratory; student distaste for laboratory classes; equipment and chemical costs; lack of qualified teaching assistants; and faculty pressures to do research. New directions for introductory…

Russell, Arlene A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Uses of videotaped instruction in the laboratory are discussed. Also discusses: (1) uses and advantages of videotaped instruction in the lecture; (2) facilities for producing videotapes; (3) facilities for using videotapes; and (4) the advantages of using interactive videodiscs for chemistry instruction. (JN)

Hayman, H. J. G. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Because class size often limits student opportunity to handle individual models, teachers use stereoscopic projections to demonstrate structural features. Describes three-dimensional pointers for use with different projection systems so teachers can indicate a particular atom or bond to entire classes, avoiding the perspective problems inherent in…

Bent, Henry A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Discusses similarities between chemistry and three central concepts of quantum physics: (1) stationary states; (2) wave functions; and (3) complementarity. Based on these and other similarities, it is indicated that quantum physics is a chemical physics. (JN)

Bent, Henry A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Discusses the nature and role of models in various aspects of the chemistry curriculum, examining the purposes and importance of tangible, linguistic, arithmetical, thermodynamic, and quantum-physical models. Strategies in using models in laboratory work and in lecture demonstrations are also considered. (JN)

Kahwa, I. A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Discusses a graphical procedure which allows the distribution constant of iodine to be determined simultaneously with the trihalide anion stability constant. In addition, the procedure extends the experimental chemistry from distribution equilibria to important thermodynamic and bonding features. Advantages of using the procedure are also…
