About Karen Timberlake
For many years, I have been interested in how students learn chemistry. New ideas in pedagogy and teaching methods have become a central focus in both my classroom and my text books. I have developed a student-centered classroom where I use PowerPoint slides to give mini-lectures and learning checks. During the class time, students work in study teams on worksheets that require them to apply new concepts.
"The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds." Anatole France
My husband, Bill, is a chemistry instructor at Los Angeles Harbor College. When we are not teaching or writing books, we are hiking, playing tennis, and traveling.
