Monica Perez Experiment 8: Acetylsalicylic Acid Experiment 01/25/2013 CHM Lab- 2211 Sec 0016 Instructor: Jennifer Reed Introduction: Commonly used as Aspirin, acetylsalicylic acid is an analgesic (pain reliever), which is one of the products of the esterification reaction between salicylic acid and acetic anhydride.

Davis gave a good example, in her book, when she said that teachers can now present demonstrations that cannot be done with traditional instructional tools, such as simulating dangers or costly lab experiments (1993). Look at how much people use technology everyday and how it has drastically affected their lives. This is why we need technology implemented in our classroom, because it is apart of our everyday life outside of the classroom.
