Going Organic in High School
WEBINAR (58 minutes) recorded March 28, 2019
Most high school chemistry textbooks have a chapter on organic chemistry tucked away at the end of the book, but this is generally not covered in a first year course. This leads students to believe that organic chemistry is a mysterious realm where the known rules of chemistry don't apply. Suggestions for incorporating more organic chemistry into regular chemistry classes to illustrate concepts will be provided.
