Alcohol, Chemistry and You
Quick Study Instructors Guide
Dr. Bill Boggan

This is a guide to teaching Alcohol Chemistry in a one or two session unit to non-science majors.  

The expected outcome is that students can apply chemistry to an understanding and application of the effects of alcohol on living systems.

The pedagogy is based on "Chemistry by the Case" by Prof. Frank Dinan of Canisius College, Buffalo, NY.
