Organic Structure Elucidation Workbook
This web site contains 64 structure elucidation problems for the qualitative analysis of organic compounds. For each problem the empirical formula, molecular weight, 500 MHz proton and 125 MHz carbon NMR spectra, IR and mass spectral data are presented. The problems are categorized as easy, moderate or difficult. Students in introductory Organic Chemistry who want practice identifying unknown compounds should find this site useful. Instructors looking for exam or classroom problems for students
Statistics for Chemists: Exercises
This website contains a group of exercises that allow students to practice basic statistical calculations for descriptive statistics, confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, regression and experimental design. The exercises are interactive and provide feedback for students who submit wrong answers.
Student Assessment of Learning Gains
This University of Wisconsin site is designed for instructors of all disciplines who would like feedback from their students about how the course elements are helping their students to learn. This page is a usable link for assessment, collaborative learning and technology in all college science courses by faculty or graduate students, although there is no particular focus on analytical science.
Introduction to Factor Analysis
This site introduces the application of factor analysis to chemical data. The tutorial, which uses data from a UV absorbance experiment, is designed for undergraduate chemistry students.
Molecular Structure and Dynamics by NMR Spectroscopy
This site provides PowerPoint slides for a series of lectures for a graduate-level course in NMR spectroscopy. While the casual student may find it hard to follow everything on the slides without an accompanying lecture, the Power Point files should be very useful for advanced students or educators putting together similar courses. Mathematica documents that allow one to perform matrix algebra and Fourier transforms are also provided.
Learning Module: What Chemists need to know about copyright
This website, developed by ACS Joint Board/Council Committee on Copyrights, provides a learning module for chemists to learn about the legal aspects governing copyright and what constitutes copyright material. It contains a set of five useful resources: (1) an html learning module about copyright for chemists; (2) a set of questions faculty could use to test students\' understanding of copyright; (3) a summary of copyright policy; (4) a pamphlet (pdf file) that could be handed out to a class fo
Thoughts on the Education of Analytical Chemists
The use of group based role playing as a teaching approach to improve the quality of undergraduate analytical chemistry.
Online Statistics: An Interactive Multimedia Course of Study
Online Statistics: An Interactive Multimedia Course of Study is an introductory-level statistics book. The material is presented both as a standard textbook and as a multimedia presentation. The book features interactive demonstrations and simulations, case studies, and an analysis lab.
Reasonable Basic Algebra
Reasonable Basic Algebra is: * An introduction that appeals to the reader's reason rather than to her/his ability to memorize. * A complete tool for teaching "developmental" students twice a week for 15 weeks. * A way for adults to learn some mathematics—more or less in the same spirit as mathematicians do. * A text, with a story-line, written to be read and reread. * A presentation that pays pedantic attention to the linguistic difficulties the reader is likely to have in
A Problem Course in Mathematical Logic
A Problem Course in Mathematical Logic is intended to serve as the text for an introduction to mathematical logic for undergraduates with some mathematical sophistication. It supplies definitions, statements of results, and problems, along with some explanations, examples, and hints. The idea is for the students, individually or in groups, to learn the material by solving the problems and proving the results for themselves. The book should do as the text for a course taught using the modified Mo
computer simulation of block dropped on a slope
Results of a computer simulation using a mechanics concept called motion analysis proposed by a research group at National Central University, Taiwan.
Assessing the Biological Weapons and Bioterrorism Threat
BIOSECURITY FOR A NEW ERA Lecture Series Biological weapons (BW) have been a significant national security preoccupation for nearly 15 years. The events of September 11 and the anthrax attacks that followed have magnified these concerns by orders of magnitude while shifting the context almost entirely to "bioterrorism." Over the past four years, the federal government has spent nearly $30 billion to counter the anticipated threat. Strangely, these responses took place in the absence of virtuall
Marine Microbial Ecology
This image-rich website from the Australian Antarctic Division's Biology program describes its research in marine microbial ecology. It includes an introduction of microbial ecology and microbial processes, followed by information about the research project. Field sampling, microscopy, flow cytometry, pigment analysis, flourometry, HPLC, culturing, feeding experiments, and the research staff are each discussed using vivid imagery. Links are provided to related websites.
Organisation of Pedestrian Movements: an Agent-Based Approach
Cities are becoming more complex in this digital era due to technological changes. Thinking of cities without such technological changes is equivalent to an embryonic state in the morphology of city growth, that is, the growth seems less advanced. So it is appropriate to think of the non digital city digitally. Urban design is one state which establishes the perfect relationship between the street, people and building. The relationship of the people with the building and street is becoming one o

Do You Know Your Health IQ? Preparing Quizzes to Assess Health Literacy in the Community
In this lesson, students offer definitions for common medical terms and determine those that are most accurate. They then prepare quizzes on health-related topics to administer to both peers and adults, and write analysis papers based on their findings.
These games support student development of number sense and the concept of mathematical operations
