A web-based complement to teaching conservation of mass in a chemical engineering curriculum Conference Paper uri icon


  • Web-based instructional modules have been widely used to teach engineering topics. In many cases, the modules are developed for a chosen topic at a specific point in the curriculum. A different approach is being pursued to develop interlinked curriculum components (ICCs), which can be used by students at many different points in the four-year curriculum. As envisioned during their development, faculty members might use an ICC to introduce students to a set of concepts or use an ICC to provide a review of a set of concepts when they will be used in a more advanced course. The initial ICC prototype focuses on conservation of mass (CoM). A description of the CoM ICC is provided together with preliminary results. American Society for Engineering Education, 2007.
