Designed for use as a supplement to a traditional text to encourage active and collaborative learning in the classroom, this activity book incorporates new methods for teaching chemistry that reflect current research on how students learn. The purpose of the guided inquiry approach is to teach you to think analytically and collaboratively in teams, like scientists do, rather than teaching you to memorize important conclusions arrived at by great scientists of the past. By looking carefully at new problems, constructing logical conclusions based on observations, and discussing the merits of your conclusions with peers, you'll develop a stronger conceptual understanding of and appreciation for the material. Honing your logical and empirical skills enables you to better pursue not only chemistry, but any other complex sets of ideas.

About the Author:

Andrei Straumanis has a B.A. in Chemistry from Oberlin College and a PhD in organic chemistry from Stanford University. During a three-year NSF-supported post-doctoral fellowship in SMET education, Dr. Straumanis developed and tested materials for guided inquiry organic chemistry.
