Description

This research project pilot study examines the aspects of organic chemistry laboratory experiment and curriculum design and how they increase student learning. Two individual experiments, a midterm and a final, were designed for performance by the undergraduate organic chemistry students. Surveys to measure students’ opinions on their laboratory learning experience were prepared based on the literature; the studies use descriptive statistics to analyze student responses to labs. By determining students’ laboratory experiences and expectations through this survey and descriptive statistics method, changes to the lab curriculum and experiments were made to meet both student and professor learning goals.
