Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Atoms First in the General Chemistry Curriculum

Symposium Title: Atoms First in the General Chemistry Curriculum
Descrption: A significant recent trend in general chemistry has been the adoption of the atoms first approach. Traditional layouts of general chemistry are being replaced by atoms first where students are exposed to the building blocks of nature first and only after an examination of atoms and their properties are compounds introduced along with stoichiometry and the many facets of how reactions rearrange atoms. This symposium is designed to provide a timely look at the atoms first approach at various institutions. How is atoms first implemented? What topics and what order is covered with your atoms first approach? What benefits/pitfalls are encountered with this approach? How does this layout affect your laboratory course?
Program: 21st BCCE
Audience: College
Organizer: Jason Overby
Restrictions: No restrictions. This is an open symposium for all to participate in.
