            B.  Course Development

¨   Developed Computer Science Course for Science Majors- interdisciplinary course incorporating manipulation of data spreadsheets and exposure to mathematical software such as ‘Maple’ and/or ‘Mathematica’

 

¨   Proposed the Advanced Laboratory course sequence as well as modified physical chemistry and quantum labs which would later be implemented into the course structure.

 

¨   Advanced Lab III- designed advanced synthetic/characterization techniques for organic and inorganic compounds

 

¨   Developed Structure and Bonding Course- atomic structure, wave mechanical description of multi-electron atoms, incorporated molecular orbital theory with applications utilizing group symmetry, and computational chemistry

 

¨   Modified Advanced Inorganic Course emphasizing bonding theory vs. descriptive approach
