Professor Thomas Wenzel wrote these collaborative activities to help students learn about molecular and atomic spectroscopy. Consequently, the student activities cover topics like ultraviolet/visible absorption, molecular fluorescence, infrared, and Raman spectroscopy. Likewise, the activities introduce students to atomic spectroscopy. In addition, Professor Wenzel provides professor’s with a list of learning objectives, an instructor’s manual, and advice for generating fruitful conversations from common student responses. The activities can be modified so that students can use them outside of class. In conclusion, these collaborative activities guide students in learning about molecular and atomic spectroscopy.
