The activities developed by the ANAPOGIL consortium fall into six main categories frequently covered in a quantitative chemistry course: Analytical Tools, Statistics, Equilibrium, Chromatography and Separations, Electrochemistry, and Spectrometry.  These materials follow the constructivist learning cycle paradigm and use a guided inquiry approach. Each activity lists content and process learning goals, and includes cues for team collaboration and self-assessment.  The classroom activities are modular in nature, and they are generally intended for use in class periods ranging from 50-75 minutes.  All activities were reviewed and classroom tested by multiple instructors at a wide variety of institutions.
