Submitted by Shirley Lin / United States Naval Academy on Fri, 08/12/2022 - 12:02
Description

From the course catalog: The chemistry of the Main Group elements and the transition metals are studied with emphasis on the properties, structures, and reactivities of these elements and their compounds.

 

Games Throughout the Inorganic Chemistry Curriculum

This collection includes several games and activities suitable for instructional use in the classroom or laboratory. In a recent Inorganic Chemistry editorial, Zachary Thammavongsy and Madalyn Radlauer describe the use of educational games as a tool for active learning. The full article may be found at https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.inorgchem.2c02544

You are encouraged to explore the items below, and use them as is (or with modifications) in your classroom or laboratory. Have fun!

Introductory Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Nerissa Lewis / Seattle Pacific University on Wed, 06/29/2022 - 00:35
Description

A systematic study of chemical principles as applied to inorganic systems. This class consist of a 3 hour lecture and a 4 hour lab. Special emphasis is placed on group theory and the use of molecular orbital, ligand field, and crystal field theories as tools to understanding the structure and reactivity of inorganic compounds. 

Introduction to Borane and Carborane Clusters: Practice with Point Groups, Electron Counting, and Electronegativity with Computational Support
Description

This LO uses borane and carborane clusters to practice assigning point groups and counting electrons. It also asks students to recall electronegativity trends to predict dipoles, and they can check their predictions against calculated Mulliken charges.

SALC: An Orbital Arrangement Game

Submitted by Madalyn Radlauer / San Jose State University on Wed, 06/15/2022 - 00:13
Description

We have developed a tabletop game to help students get comfortable with symmetry adapted linear combinations of orbitals (SALCs), a conceptual model used to understand bonding in molecular orbital theory. We have found that students often get anxious about SALCs and miss not only the visual connections to symmetry, but also the fun! This LO includes information about the game, files you can use to print your own copy as well as a link in case you want to purchase a copy, and an example of how it might be incorporated into the classroom.
