P842: 'Strohl'ing through Prep Chem at WVU: 33 Years of Sig Figs and Scientific Notation

Mark Schraf (West Virginia University, USA)

West Virginia University first offered Prep Chem in the late 1970’s in response to the need to bridge the gap between WV rural high school students’ total lack of chemistry experience and college freshman chemistry. We look at the approach, still used today, of weekly, bifurcated quizzes, consistent testing across multiple sections, and innovative attempts to engage and respond to the changing and ever-increasing student population enrolling in Prep Chem.
