How did Kristen K.'s body wind up at the bottom of a lake, and what do wedding cake ingredients, soil samples, radioactive decay, bone age, blood stains, bullet matching, and drug lab evidence reveal about whodunit? These mysteries are at the core of this teacher resource book, which meets the unique needs of high school chemistry classes in a highly memorable way. The book makes forensic evidence the foundation of a series of hands-on, week-long labs. As you weeve the labs throughout the year and students solve the case, the narrative provides vivid lessons in why chemistry concepts are relevant and how they connect. All chapters include case information specific to each performance assessment and highlight the related US national standards and chemistry contents. Chapters include: teacher guides to help you set up; student performance assessments; a suspect file to introduce the characters and new information about their relationships to the case; samples of student work that has been previously assessed (and that serves as an answer key for you); and grading rubics. Using Forensics in Chemistry as your guide, you will gain the confidence to use inquiry-based strategies and performance-based assessments with a complex chemistry curriculum. Your students may gain an interest in chemistry that rivals their fascination with Bones and CSI.
