Consumer Chemistry Updates

Project Overview

     This Real World Learning Object (RWLO) is an exercise in accessing current (daily, weekly) governmental agency updates on consumer products.  Using the website of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the student in a nonscience majors' chemistry course will be directed to readily understood publications/updates of the FDA. 

          'Consumer Chemistry Updates' is meant to expand the student's working knowledge of drugs and, therefore, should closely follow  in-class sessions covering organic functional groups and then biological macro-molecules.  One in-class session on drug categories would also be helpful for the student.
