Math and Science Partnership Scoring High Grades

Description

At first glance, it looks like an activity from a typical high school chemistry book. But what's different about this experiment is the follow-up assignment, which Voiers calls "Making Meaning."

You won't find this assignment in a textbook because it was developed by Voiers herself at a professional development session.

As a testament to the effectiveness of this advanced curriculum, Morehead State University offers college chemistry credit to students who make a high enough score on the final exam in Voiers' Chemistry II class. Voiers attributes the higher-level classroom experience to resources and innovations made possible by the Appalachian Math and Science Partnership (AMSP)...
