Nomenclature of Alkanes
Applied Strategy: Problem-Based Learning
Brief segment of class period (< 20 mins)
The aim of this activity is to present the concepts of nomenclature in organic chemistry in a way that encourages self learning and frees up class time by using a flipped classroom approach.
The students are presented with resources (videos and slides) and encouraged to develop their naming skills with a practice quiz drawing on a testbank of questions. It is up to the student to decide when they are ready to attempt the final quiz for marks.
