Promoting Graphical Thinking: Using Temperature and a Graphing Calculator To Teach Kinetics Concepts  José E. Cortés-Figueroa and Deborah A. Moore-Russo
A Calculator-Based Laboratory (CBL) System, a graphing calculator, and a cooling piece of metal are used in a classroom demonstration to teach key concepts of a first-order chemical reaction. This activity promotes graphical thinking and permits student-centered instruction where the students explore concepts and discover how simple mathematical equations model observable facts (data).
