  2. NMR Project

    "Guided Inquiry Experiments with Fourier Transform NMR Spectroscopy (FT-NMR)"

    Guided inquiry experiments were developed for introductory general and organic chemistry courses that use NMR spectroscopic analysis as an integrated hands-on method that provides evidence essential for reaching conclusions from the experiments.

  4. Vernier Project

    "Discovery Experiments as a Vehicle for Enhanced Learning"

    Research suggests that relatively little conceptual learning occurs in undergraduate science labs. This problem is to be addressed by initiating a coordinated program of discovery experiments as the centerpiece of a plan to transform the undergraduate chemistry laboratory program at UCCS.
