The purpose of the guided inquiry approach is to teach students how to think like scientists, not to memorise conclusions arrived at by scientists of the past. This guide is designed to be used as a supplement to a traditional chemistry textbook to encourage active learning in the classroom.

Andrei Straumanis has a B.A. in Chemistry from Oberlin College and a PhD in organic chemistry from Stanford University. During a three-year NSF-supported post-doctoral fellowship in SMET education, Dr. Straumanis developed and tested materials for guided inquiry organic chemistry. Since 1997, he has given numerous talks and workshops on active learning in organic chemistry and the use of guided inquiry in large classrooms.
