Title: Integrative Learning in High School Chemistry


1
Integrative Learning in High School Chemistry
  • Michael Kandianis
  • Terry Koker
  • Barry Rowe

Centennial High School - Champaign, IL
2
Goals
Experimental (curriculum supplemental
laboratories)
  • Theoretical
  • (curriculum)

Modeling (Java Applets, ChemViz
STELLA)
3
Approaches
  • Theoretical
  • Introductory Aquatic and Organic Chemistry
  • AP Level Thermochem and Chemical Kinetics
  • Experimental
  • Dissolved Oxygen Lab multidisciplinary approach
  • Ester Synthesis
  • Phase Changes physical property dependence on
    temperature
  • Rate Law derivation

4
Modeling Approaches
  • Introductory
  • Graphical methods (Excel)
  • Visualization of chemical processes (Java applets
    ChemViz)
  • AP Level
  • Visualization of chemical processes (Java applets
    ChemViz)
  • Chemical reaction modeling (STELLA)

Coupling Physical and Computer Models
5
Physical Models and The Scientific Method
  • Familiar processes provide link to chemical
    system
  • Hypothesis testing and data analysis

6
Applets Interactively Illustrate Concepts

7
STELLA Modeling
Chemical Reaction Modeling with STELLA reinforces
these concepts and allows students to experiment
with quantitative analysis.
8
Classroom Results
STELLA
  • After looking at my results from this lab
    everything makes sense. - AP Chem Student

Physical Models and Applets
All students actively participate in physical
modeling exercises and in some cases experiment
with java applets at home
ChemViz
Less down time, decreased student/instructor
ratio ? increased interest
9
Additional Support
  • AP Chemistry bonus sessions
  • Lecture examples of chemistry
  • curriculum in action
  • Critical thinking activities
  • Full activity descriptions can be viewed under
    the
