During that time, her name has become associated with the strategic use of pedagogical tools that promote student success in chemistry and the application of chemistry to real-life situations. More than one million students have learned chemistry using texts, laboratory manuals, and study guides written by Karen Timberlake. In addition to General, Organic and Biological Chemistry, 6th Edition, she is also the author of An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, 13th Edition, with the accompanying Study Guide and Selected Solutions Manual, Laboratory Manual and Essentials Laboratory Manual, and Basic Chemistry, 5th Edition, with the accompanying Study Guide and Selected Solutions Manual.

 

Professor Timberlake belongs to numerous scientific and educational organizations including the American Chemical Society (ACS) and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). She has been the Western Regional Winner of the Excellence in College Chemistry Teaching Award given by the Chemical Manufacturers Association. She received the McGuffey Award in Physical Sciences from the Textbook Authors Association for her textbook Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, 8th Edition, which has demonstrated her excellence over time. She received the “Texty” Textbook Excellence Award from the Textbook Authors Association for the first edition of Basic Chemistry. She has participated in education grants for science teaching including the Los Angeles Collaborative for Teaching Excellence (LACTE) and a Title III grant at her college. She speaks at conferences and educational meetings on the use of student-centered teaching methods in chemistry to promote the learning success of students.
