You are welcome to explore the faculty and student website. Or you can look at some specific examples that I have prepared below.

Introduction to Matter

BCE1

DCI1

ACA1

BCE1 is completed before coming to the first class. The DCI is completed during class in small groups. The ACA is completed after class.

BCE data

ACA data

BCEdata F2015

ACAData F2015

In the BCE data. Look at responses to Questions: 2i - 2iv and 3a - 3d.

Relationship between mass and volume

BCE3

DCI3

ACA3

The BCE uses a modified pHet simulation to investigate the relationship between mass and volume.

BCE data


In the BCE data. Look at responses to Questions: 5, 6 and 7.

Writing chemical equations

BCE70

DCI70

ACA70

The BCE and ACA are new. So no data to share. Derived from BCE1 and ACA1

 


 

Introduction to Stoichiometry

BCE9

DCI9

ACA9

The BCE uses a MoLE simualtion to introduce ICE tables. The ACA uses the new Stoichiometry simulation from Pearson.

BCE data

ACA data

 

Mass, Heat and Temperature

BCE14

DCI14

ACA17

The BCE asks questions to determine student's basic intuition about mass, heat and temperature.

BCE data

BCEdata F2015

ACA data

ACAData F2015

The DCI activity causes students to address some misconceptions they have about mass, heat and temperature. Unfortunately a subset of students do not adjust their reasoning to think properly about the relationship.

More Calorimetry

BCE15

BCE16

BCE15 uses a data table to guide students toward specific heat. BCE16 uses the new Pearson simulation to collect dissolution data.

BCE data

ACA data

The DCI activity causes students to address some misconceptions they have about mass, heat and temperature. Unfortunately a subset of students do not adjust their reasoning to think properly about the relationship.

Atomic structure (ionization energy)

BCE22

DCI

ACA24

BCE22 uses ionization energy data to begin an investigation of a model for the electronic structure of the atom. The DCI provides guided inquiry activities to invent shells and subshells to develop a model of the electronic structure of the atom

BCE data

BCEdata F2015

ACA data

ACAData F2015

The BCE data link shows an earlier version of this BCE where the questions were open-ended. This provides a view of the development of many of the BCEs and ACAs, where earlier versions help inform replacement BCEs and ACAs.

Kinetic Molecular Theory

BCE80

DCI80

ACA80

BCE80 uses MoLE simulation to explore gases at the particulate level.

BCE data

BCEdata F2015

 

Relationship between molality and freezing point (or boiling point)

BCE40

DCI40

ACA46

Data collection and analysis to determine the relation between change in freezing point and molality, and to invent the freezing point constant.

BCEdata SP2016

BCEdata SP2016

 

Relationship between molality and freezing point (or boiling point) for ionic compounds

BCE41

DCI40

ACA47

Data collection and analysis to determine the relation between change in freezing point and molality for ionic compounds, and to invent 'i'.

BCEdata SP2016

ACAdata SP2016

 

Reversible Reactions

BCE49

DCI49

ACA55

Develop the concept of a reversible reaction from a particulate level view

BCEdata SP2016

 

Extent of a reaction

BCE50

DCI50

ACA56

Data collection and analysis to determine the invent the concept of an equilibrium constant. The BCE looks at a macroscopic reaction and the DCI from a particulate level.

BCEdata SP2016

ACAdata SP2016

 

LeChatelier's Principle

BCE79

DCI78

ACA78

In the BCE trying to get students to design and describe an experiment to determine how a change in temperature shifts a reaction, and how pressures shifts a reaction. The DCI activity is a more comprehensive investigation to invent LeChatelier's principle.

BCEdata SP2016

ACAdata SP2016
