Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


This workbook, designed to encourage active and collaborative learning in the organic chemistry classroom, can be used as a supplement to any organic chemistry text. Intended to accompany the full-year organic chemistry course, it incorporates new methods for teaching chemistry, reflecting current research on how students learn. The workbook takes a guided-inquiry approach to the material, which teaches students how to think like scientists, rather than simply memorizing important conclusions arrived at by great scientists of the past. Students develop a strong conceptual understanding and appreciation of the material by carefully observing new situations, constructing logical conclusions based on these observations, and discussing the merits of their conclusion with peers.
