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.
