Inquiries in Science®: Introducing Organic Chemistry Kit

Item # 251218 Exclusive

Students explore the chemistry of carbon using a variety of modeling methods. Based on the models created, they learn about molecular shape, stereochemistry, isomerism, and different classes of organic compounds. A series of exercises help students relate the structure of organic molecules to their functional applications. Students then design and conduct their own experiment to evaluate the efficiency of synthetic and natural hydrophilic and hydrophobic polymers in cleaning up an oil spill.

    Inquiries in Science Series

    Inquiries in Science® Series Kits

    Inquiries in Science® is our exclusive series of hands-on kits specifically designed to help high school students understand abstract, hard-to-grasp science concepts. The series tracks well with most textbooks, and kit topics reflect state science standards and extensive educator input. Since Inquiries in Science® is modular, you can use the kits individually, as a strand, or as a series to teach biology, chemistry, and environmental science.


    Improve Student Achievement

    Field-tested in classrooms nationwide, Inquiries in Science® employs guided inquiry based on the 5E learning cycle of engage, explore, explain, extend, and evaluate. This inquiry-based approach also promotes STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) practices. It enables students to:

    • Consider a real-world question or problem
    • Plan and conduct an investigation and gather data
    • Understand the science concept by analyzing data and communicating findings
    • Apply their findings to the original real-world question or problem and master the science concept

    Inquiries in Science® helps students build critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, and encourages creativity, collaboration, and teamwork. It creates an environment in which you and your students work together as active learners.

    Disciplines and topics addressed by the kits were organized and selected based on data from numerous sources, including the National Research Council's National Science Education Standards, AAAS's Project 2061 Science Benchmarks, NAEP's Science Framework, and state science education standards from across the US. In addition, the Inquiries in Science® content and activities reflect the science practices and engineering practices, core ideas, and crosscutting concepts outlined by the National Research Council's A Framework for K–12 Science Education (2011) and the Next Generation Science Standards (2013).
