Interactive Quiz-Yourself Simulations
Keywords:simulations, thermodynamics, material and energy balances, active learning
Twenty-two interactive simulations that require students to follow a step-by-step procedure were prepared for use in material and energy balances, thermodynamics, and separations courses. For each step, students input an answer and then the correct answer is displayed; hints are provided for most steps. To develop mastery, students can re-start the simulation with different values of the parameters. The simulations are available on the LearnChemE website (http://www.learncheme.com/quiz-yourself/step-by-step-simulations).
