Professor Mu-Hyun Baik

Professor Baik's research group, utilizing large-scale computer simulations, is trying to better understand (1) how to split water more efficiently to generate hydrogen that could be used as fuel, which would provide a permanent solution to the energy crisis (2) how to design better anticancer drugs based on the "blockbuster"-drug cisplatin, and (3) how beta-amyloid/copper complexes that are found in the brains of Alzheimer's disease patients may promote cell death - the ultimate goal is to understand this disease well enough to find rational strategies towards a therapy, if not a cure.

CALM benefits faculty by providing them with a straightforward means of assigning homework, and grading it in an automatic fashion. CALM provides tools to examine the performance of either an individual student or a group of students. Faculty can thus assess the comprehension of an individual or the entire class on a given topic.


CALM provides the student with the opportunity to learn in a way that:

  • Allows a student multiple attempts to answer a question without penalty
  • Reinforces learning by providing immediate feedback
  • Incorporates adaptive features to effectively test each student
  • Emphasizes practicing similar questions to develop mastery

The newest features of CALM include:

  • Practice tests to simulate test taking and reduce test anxiety
