Quantitative exercises tied to and based upon classic papers from the history of chemistry allow teachers to use historical material and reinforce principle-based problem-solving learning objectives. e.g.
reproduce the analysis carried out in the original paper, or some part of that analysis
critically analyze the historical data
Classic Calculations include brief historical notes on the investigators and explanatory notes and solutions of the exercises. Exercises are suitable for in-class examples or homework assignments. Most are for introductory college chemistry courses; some are suitable for more or less advanced courses.
