This collection of interactive computer models and simulations of common instruments and techniques used in analytical chemistry is available for free download. The software can be used on Macintosh or Windows computers. Most of the models have a point-and-click interface; users click buttons and drag sliders to control variables, and the models respond dynamically. They were designed to be used by individual students either as homework assignments, for in-class use in a computer lab environment, or in the laboratory for the analysis of student-generated data. Some of the models can be used by the instructor in lecture-demonstration environments. Most of them come with student assignment handouts attached. The mathematical basis for each model is described, including all cell definitions and equations. (less)

Learners observe different light sources, outdoors and indoors, using prism glasses (diffraction glasses) and color filters. Natural light (sun) and artificial light (lamp, candle, LED) sources are broken up into component colors by the glasses, and filters are used to block different colors. Both shadows and paints are also explained as types of filters. The activity is written as part of a kit that could be checked out of a library, though the kit is not required. (less)

This course is a continuation of Organic Chemistry I. The student will focus on four most important classes of reactions: electrophilic substitution at aromatic rings, nucleophilic addition at carbonyl compounds, hydrolysis of carboxylic acids, and carbon-carbon bond formation using enolates. The enolate portion of this course will cover the reactivity of functional groups. The student will also look at synthetic strategies for making simple, small organic molecules, using the knowledge of organic chemistry accumulated thus far. This course also introduces biological molecules, including carbohydrates, peptides and proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids, from a molecular perspective. The student will learn how chemical reactions, especially oxidation and reduction reactions, form the basis of all life. Note that in biology, the student would study the functionality of these structures by asking, 'How do they operate?' whereas in the field of organic chemistry, the student will ask: 'What are they made of?' The student will conclude this course with a unit on spectroscopy. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: Identify the chemistry and basic mechanisms of the following functional groups: ethers, epoxides, thiols, sulfides, benzene, amines, aldehydes, ketones, and carboxylic acids and their derivatives; Plan the synthesis of unsymmetrical ethers, amines, and carboxylic acid derivatives (esters, amides, etc.); Predict the product(s) of an electrophilic addition reaction involving conjugated dienes; Use the Diels-Alder reaction on conjugated dienes to form new carbon-carbon bonds and chiral centers of a desired configuration (R or S); Determine whether a molecule is aromatic, non-aromatic, or anti-aromatic; Indicate the position in which an electrophile will be added on an aromatic ring, given the other substituents present; Identify the products and mechanisms of electrophilic and nucleophilic aromatic substitution reactions; Demonstrate mastery of enolate chemistry and techniques for C-C bond formation; Plan the synthesis of simple molecules using the reactions learned throughout both the Organic Chemistry I and Organic Chemistry II courses; Describe the chemistry associated with biological molecules such as amino acids, nucleic acids, lipids, and carbohydrates; Identify different monosaccharides, disaccharides, aldoses, and ketoses, as well as reducing and non-reducing carbohydrates; Identify the twenty naturally occurring amino acids and describe the mechanisms associated with peptide cleavage and synthesis; Use spectroscopy (mass spectrometry, UV-Vis spectrometry, infrared spectrometry, and nuclear magnetic resonance) to characterize an organic molecule.

This teaching resource was developed by a K-12 science teacher in the American Physiological Society퉌Ís 2008 Frontiers in Physiology Program. For more information on this program, please visit www.frontiersinphys.org. Students will design and carry out an experiment where they will observe and evaluate how algae population changes when subjected to environmental influences by using a variety of detecting methods like, using a Spectrophotometer or Spec-20 for analyzing algae population density through measuring transmitted and absorbed light passing through growth tubes. An alternative analysis could be done with the assistance of a color wheel or CBL-Colorimeter Probe. This laboratory will fit into any ecology class or a unit on population changes or in any biology class unit dealing with understanding population dynamics and photosynthesis. It could be used for advanced biology classes fitting into population changes, photosynthetic studies, and food chains. Some understanding of light infiltration or absorption of light through photosynthetic organisms will assist in this laboratory. Upon completion of this activity, students will be able to enable student to collect data on living organisms using algae as templates. (less)
