To motivate the student's interest and curiosity about the issues involved.
MAIN TEXT OF MODULE
May include background and history. Covers the main scientific concepts and applications. This section will include:
POLITICS AND CHEMISTRY
In this section we review the major legislation that is pending and that which has been passed that impacts the topics presented.
SELF TEST and REVIEW
This component is included to provide a means of evaluating whether the student comprehends the material in the module. We include questions on interpreting graphs and designing experiments in order to allow the students opportunities to develop critical thinking skills.
This section will include both laboratory activities and other learning activities so that teachers will be able to customize the module to their individual classroom. Activities will also include asking the students to search for new, applicable internet sites.
EXPLORING CAREERS IN CHEMISTRY
This section will describe career opportunities in areas of chemistry that relate to the material in the modules. We will include educational requirements for these positions.
An e-mail address for the module is given so that we can obtain feedback, which may include new material and new ideas for the expansion of the site. The users comments provide us with valuable information on the success of the program. Please send any comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
