Assessment Tools to Examine Students’ Reasoning with Multiple Representations of Bonding with Stacey Lowery Bretz

The use of multiple representations helps to characterize students' understandings and their misconceptions. Stacey Lowery Bretz shared multiple resources and strategies for using them in her ChemEd X Talk. The recording is available here!

Fun with Formula Stoichiometry: “Who poisoned Veronica Merriweather?”

"Who Poisoned Veronica Merriweather?" is a fun application of formula stoichiometry for students who are placed in the role of a CSI lab sleuth helping to interpret chemical data to identify a murderer. Topics covered include formula stoichiometry, percentage composition, empirical and molecular formulas and gas chromatography–mass spectrometry.
