These assignments are designed to be capstone activities at the end of units on figures of merit (such as sensitivity and LOD), acid-base equilibria, separations, spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and electrochemistry. Each assignment consists of an out-of-class reading assignment drawn from the primary literature accompanied by objective questions and a set of open-ended, in-class discussion questions. The assignments are designed to require just one class period and can be used before an exam to review important concepts, examine them from new angles, and apply them to new situations.
