Using Pseudoscience as an Aid to Teaching General and Analytical Chemistry
This site developed by Michael Epstein, Margaret Bullard, Brad Buehler, and Robin Kloster, Department of Science, Mount Saint Mary\'s College contains case studies and experiments, used at this college in Maryland, that could be readily incorporated into an analytical chemistry course. Their inclusion of pseudoscientific topics include (a) lecture, discussion, and examinations; (b) demonstrations; (c) laboratory experiments; and (d) student attendance at a conference where controversial research
Interpreting Electrospray Mass Spectra
This site is a tutorial on interpretation of electrospray mass spectra of multiply charged molecules. It provides a simple explanation of the electrospray process and the potential for the creation of multiply charged species, especially when working with peptides. The mathematics of determining the charge state and molecular weight of the peptide is also explained. Although this site provides a good foundation on electrospray MS of peptides, students requiring an advanced understanding of MS
Introduction to Chemical Equilibria
An interactive set of applet-based demonstrations (many modeled as experimental measurements) that illustrate the concepts and calculations of chemical equilibria. The site demonstrates equilibrium processes in a reaction vessel by plotting the concentration of reactants and products over time. The site would be a good supplement for a class in general chemistry or quantitative analysis.
The Web: Design for Active Learning
This page focuses on interactivity as it applies to a cohesive design including, high interface, content, and instructional design. This page is usable in gathering strategies for applying active learning in a college environment, although none are specifically related to analytical chemistry. Unfortunately, several of the links on the page are broken, but there are a number of useful ones.
Drug company GlaxoSmithKline offers this online genetics tutorial designed for kids. The tutorial presents lessons on DNA, genes, heredity, genetic susceptibility to disease, and the role of genetic markers in predetermining risk of disease and medicinal response. Each subject page includes a description of the topic, plus loads of interactive educational games and activities. The educational games are especially well done, although the cartoon-style presentation, which is intended for younger s
Introduction to Mass Spectrometry
This site contains an on-line text on mass spectrometry at the intermediate level. The text gives good general coverage of mass spectrometry instrumentation and applications in very readable format. It contains nice diagrams that provide a visualization of the ionization and mass selection processes. It also contains an overview of applications of mass spectrometry near the end that is different than most sites related to MS. It is especially appropriate for intermediate students.
Integrated Spectral Database System for Organic Compounds
Searchable database of infrared, NMR, and mass spectra of organic compounds.
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This document is an introduction to energy. The reading will define energy and discuss topics such as (1) Forms of energy, (2) Kinetic energy (electrical, radiant, thermal, motion, and sound), (3) Potential energy (Chemical, Stored Mechanical, Nuclear, and Gravitational), (4) Conservation of energy, (5) Energy efficiency, and (6) Sources of Energy (renewable and nonrenewable). The document also depicts illustrations of energy transformations and U.S. energy consumption by source. This resource i
