Dr. Charles H. Atwood received his BS degree in chemistry from Millsaps College and his PhD in nuclear chemistry from Florida State University. His postdoctoral research was conducted at the Australian National University. A temporary appointment at the University of Georgia was followed by a ten-year stay at Mercer University where Dr. Atwood developed a series of papers on teaching nuclear topics in the chemistry curriculum. In 1995, he joined the faculty of the University of Georgia's chemistry department and was named Coordinator of Freshman Chemistry in 1997. He holds this position to date. . At the University of Georgia, Dr. Atwood has developed significant use of instructional technology in the freshman chemistry program, including pioneering computerized testing. Over the last three years, his research group has studied the use of item response theory to analyze student performance on assessments, with the ultimate goal of improving teaching in the program. He is also the author of two other successful SURVIVAL GUIDES. His hobbies include astronomy, traveling, and bicycle riding.
