For Fall 2010, an additional lab activity relating to solutions will be added to the schedule to address SLO 2. Physical models capable of representing solute solvation and ion dissociation would also help students learn the topics involved in SLOs 2 and 6. The department currently has animations to show solvation, but models to physically manipulate would help students visualize concepts like dilution and ion dissociation. Budget Amount Requested: $800.00
