Nuclear Chemistry
Quick Study Instructors Guide

Dr. Frank Settle


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

The expected outcome is that students can apply nuclear science  to world events and begin to critically evaluate what the see hear and read.

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