Goal: Our purpose is to provide a safe environment where individuals can grow and thrive during their academic career in chemistry and biology (and the multidisciplinary subject of biochemistry) at The Ohio State University at Marion. We aim to help students develop good study habits, improve their time management skills, and help them navigate through complicated chemical and biological concepts.
Method: We work with professors to help students stop simply memorizing and start developing their critical thinking skills. To do this we help students identify the information or variables provided in assignments, ask them to identify their end goal, and then we provide guidance to help them reach that objective. This demonstrates to students a step-by-step process for approaching both concept questions and analytical problems. In implementing this method we are providing our students with one of the many tools necessary to succeed in the continually changing fields of chemistry and biology.
