Noei, Nima; Imani, Iman Mohammadi; Wilson, Lee D.; Azizian, Saeid – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A low-cost and simple setup to measure the densities of liquids is introduced herein. The results and reliability of this setup were evaluated for pure liquids, water-ethanol binary mixtures, and aqueous NaCl solutions. The constructed densitometer provided density values with acceptable relative errors (less than ±3.0%), which were compared to…

Fedick, Patrick W.; Schrader, Robert L.; Ayrton, Stephen T.; Pulliam, Christopher J.; Cooks, R. Graham – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Process analytical technologies (PATs) are used in the pharmaceutical and other industries to monitor chemical processes in real-time with analytical instrumentation. Each PAT analyzer brings its own advantages and disadvantages to the process, and multiplexing PAT analyzers can be advantageous as they can provide confirmatory measurements and…

Kwan, Ann H.; Mobli, Mehdi; Schirra, Horst J.; Wilson, Jennifer C.; Jones, Oliver A. H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Magnetic resonance is a powerful technology that has had a major impact across the physical, life, and medical sciences, from chemistry to medical imaging, with ever-expanding applications in new areas as diverse as mining and food science. It is, however, also a difficult subject to teach, as the theory is complex and requires some familiarity…

Scholes, Colin A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Indigenous Australians are significantly underrepresented in chemistry based professions, which arises from their low participation in physical science subjects in secondary and tertiary education. This is a multifaceted issue with a number of identified solutions, one of which is to link chemistry with aspects of Indigenous culture. Here, four…

Duffy, Patrick L.; Enneking, Kory M.; Gampp, Tyler W.; Hakim, Khatijah Amir; Coleman, Amelia F.; Laforest, Krista V.; Paulson, Dylan M.; Paulson, Erik T.; Shepard, Justin D.; Tiettmeyer, Jessica M.; Mazzarone, Kristina M.; Grove, Nathaniel P. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
In recent decades, technology has become a constant presence in the chemistry classroom with online homework extensively used in many programs. Although research has pointed to both increased course performance and better study habits in classes that utilize online homework, little work has explored the extraneous load that these platforms place…

Kellamis, Natalia M.; Yezierski, Ellen J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
With the introduction of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), curriculum and professional development have had to change rapidly to fit the new standards. To aid with those changes, the EQuIP rubric was released as a guide for NGSS alignment. This study aims to evaluate lesson plans developed through the Target Inquiry project to…

Bain, Kinsey; Rodriguez, Jon-Marc G.; Towns, Marcy H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Chemistry education research (CER) as a field is inherently interdisciplinary and has traditionally borrowed ideas, frameworks, and methodologies from other fields, such as anthropology, psychology, cognitive science, and science education more broadly. In this paper we encourage researchers to continue this tradition by utilizing the rich body of…

Budke, Michael; Parchmann, Ilka; Beeken, Marco – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
In the past 20 years, science education in schools has increasingly been supported by extracurricular learning opportunities. From the point of view of pupils and teachers, student laboratories make meaningful contributions to complement the teaching of science. Studies have shown that participation in student laboratories has increased students'…

Seethaler, Sherry; Czworkowski, John; Wynn, Lynda – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Change over time is a crosscutting theme in the sciences that is pivotal to reaction kinetics, an anchoring concept in undergraduate chemistry, and students' struggles with rates of change are well-documented. Informed by the education scholarship in chemistry, physics, and mathematics, a research team with members from complementary disciplinary…

Padilla Mercado, Jeralyne B.; Coombs, Eri M.; De Jesus, Jenny P.; Bretz, Stacey Lowery; Danielson, Neil D. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Multifunctional chemical analysis (MCA) systems provide a viable alternative for large scale instruction while supporting a hands-on approach to more advanced instrumentation. These systems are robust and typically use student stations connected to a remote central computer for data collection, minimizing the need for computers at every student…

Davis, Eric J.; Jones, Michael; Thiel, D. Alex; Pauls, Steve – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Additive manufacturing (3D printing) is a technology with near-unlimited potential for the chemical educator. However, its adoption into higher education has been limited by the dual requirements of expertise in 3D printing and 3D computer-aided design (CAD). Thus, its reported utilization in the chemistry curriculum has been within the creation…

Najmr, Stan; Chae, Joanna; Greenberg, Mara L.; Bowman, Cory; Harkavy, Ira; Maeyer, Jenine R. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Improving communication between people in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields and the public is critical to the future of STEM. Partnerships between institutions of higher education with K-12 schools are identified as one effective strategy to support community engagement. We have employed a service-learning model to…

Ritchie, Tessy S.; Cardenas, Maria T. Perez; Ganapati, Shweta – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Professional development in chemistry doctoral programs has traditionally relied on the skills and opportunities embedded within the requirements of the Ph.D. program being sufficient for employment. As a result, little emphasis is usually placed on career planning and exploration within the doctoral curriculum. Additionally, the support provided…

Smith, Andri L.; Paddock, Jean R.; Vaughan, Joel M.; Parkin, David W. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
The challenge in chemistry courses for nonscience majors (such as nursing majors) is not that the students cannot learn chemistry but that they "think" they cannot learn chemistry. With this in mind, the authors' goal was to create a learning environment in which students would feel motivated to learn and would gain confidence in their…
