Qualitative Analysis of Interactive 3D models for Learning E2 Reaction Stereochemistry
This is a self-paced tutorial using 3D models and line drawings to teach organic chemistry students E2 reaction stereochemistry.
On-line worksheets of organic molecules' polarity and solubility, and intermolecular forces
The 5 organic worksheets are set up as guided inquiry for students to do at home on the computer using the models from ChemEdDL Models 360.
Creating a Connection between Everyday Life and Stoichiometry using ChemPrime
This page is authored by Lisa I Smith, M.S., North Hennepin Community College, based on participation in the ChemEd DL summit hosted by the University of Wisconsin - Madison and Catholic University of America.
This activity allows the student to access a webpage that provides examples of stoichiometry using terminology and objects they use in their everyday life. This activity can help a student make a connection between the complex chemical concept of stoichiometry and their current knowledge.
Molecular Modeling of Bond Type, Polarity, and Resonance Using Models 360
This lab exercise allows students to use computer generated models of molecules in Models360 to explore bond type, polarity, and resonance and to help them visualize these concepts. Students will have the opportunity to practice drawing Lewis structures, naming shapes, predicting bond angles, and determining polarity.
A ChemPath to supplement POGIL activities
A ChemPath has been developed to supplement in-class Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) activities. ChemPaths is the Student Portal of the Chemical Education Digital Library and this ChemPath includes pre-activity assignments with links to relevant websites, tutorials or applications that prepare the students for POGIL in-class activities.
ChemPath To Writing Chemical Names and Formulas
This tutorial covers chemical nomenclature using the stock system. The interactive activity, scenario and crossword puzzle allows practice in honing nomenclature skills.
Review of electrongegativity, geometry, polarity and intermolecular forces using Models 360
This activity is designed for freshmen level health professional students enrolled in an organic/biological chemistry course. Concepts important to an understanding of intermolecular forces and the connection to physical properties are reviewed through a series of questions which students answer after viewing Lewis structures and employing ChemED DL Models 360 functionality.
Stereochemistry Podcast Video Tutorials Using Models 360
This stereochemistry tutorial helps students to master steps in assigning the configuration of the stereocenter (asymmetric or stereogenic carbon). Review is accomplished through podcast videos, follow-up questions with manipulable embedded Jmol molecules, and some discussion of comparison between molecular models and prospective drawings.
Molecular Geometry and Molecular Polarity
The structure of several simple molecules will be examined in this laboratory exercise. The Lewis structures will be drawn, models of the molecules will be examined using the ChemEd DL Models 360 program, and the shape, bond angles, and molecular polarity will be determined.
Molecular Geometry Laboratory
Mark Wathen Snow College Ephraim, UT
This molecular geometry laboratory utilizes both Lewis structures and computer models using Models 360. Students will explore shape and polarity as they manipulate three-dimensional molecular structures.
