View Resource A Problem Based Learning Approach to Analytical and Applied Chemistry

This paper, published by the Royal Society of Chemistry, discusses using a problem based learning approach to analytical and applied chemistry. A case study is described which is based on an investigation of a fictitious suspicious death, and which relates both to analytical chemistry and forensic science. It is designed to be flexible, so that it may be altered for different types of courses....

View Resource Dolphin Deaths: A Case Study in Environmental Toxicology

The National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science, which is housed at the University of Buffalo, is a National Science Foundation-sponsored, award-winning program that brings together various peer-reviewed case studies in order to enliven science education at the secondary and university levels. This particular case concerns an "unusual mortality event" (UME) of dolphins on the East Coast of...

View Resource Toxicity Testing

This learning activity from the Advanced Technology Environmental and Energy Center (ATEEC) will help students understand the impacts of pollution in an ecosystem and the effects those substances can have on those who live there. The class will define basic routes of entry as well as the toxicological effects of chemicals on the body. The activity should take about 50 minutes to set up, and is...

View Resource Toxicological Profiles

The Federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) produces "toxicological profiles" for hazardous substances found at National Priorities List (NPL) sites. These hazardous substances are ranked based on frequency of occurrence at NPL sites, toxicity, and potential for human exposure. Toxicological profiles are developed from a priority list of 275 substances. This site contains...

View Resource ToxLearn: A Multi-Module Toxicology Tutorial

The U.S. National Library of Medicine's Toxicology and Environmental Health Information Program and the U.S. Society of Toxicology have teamed up to create ToxLearn which is an interactive multi-module learning tool. The purpose of this tool is to provide an introduction to fundamental toxicological principles and concepts, and it does not require any knowledge beyond a basic understanding of...
