Lesson plans for symmetry

Hi all,

Has anyone developed a guided inquiry or Q&A worksheet for Symmetry@Otterbein? (http://symmetry.otterbein.edu/).

Hi, 

I think one of my colleagues might have used it in the past. I can check with them. If not, I think one should be developed as it is a great resource!

I have a guided-inquiry activity that I've been using with the old JChemEd "Symmetry and Point Groups" software.  You can find it here at the link below.  It's been increasingly difficult to run the JChemEd software, as the newer versions of Windows won't run them, so I've been planning to update it using the Symmetry@Otterbein site, which is very close to being a web-based version of the software.

Jeremiah,

  That's the type of thing I'm looking for.  Thanks.

Hi Bob,

I am making an in-class-activity for this quarter for using Otterbein in class (in a PC classroom). I will post it to Ionic Viper when I am done.

Hi, 

I totally forgot to post my activity!

I am going to submit it now. It was a in-class activity/take-home exercise (I made it waaaaaaaaaaaaay too long!). 

This coming spring, I am going to use it, but chop it down to a shorter activity.
