Cross Curricular Themes of Water Quality in Introductory General Biology and Chemistry Courses
As we continue to adapt to changes in 21th century, it becomes increasingly important that students become science literate and learn the skills early in their academic career. Most students sign up for general biology and chemistry courses in the same semester. But they treat them as separate course, and just consider each as an abstract subject. In addition, students in our large general biology and chemistry courses comprise a diverse set of majors. These students often lack interest in the content and wonder how it fits into their career goal. Most students in these two courses are not prepared to do critical thinking. We modified the course by creating interdisciplinary teaching modules for both courses using the case study teaching with a theme on the impact of water quality on human health. Results from the project reveal that students in revitalized general chemistry course scored higher in the ACS final compared to students the previous fall semester.
