Qualitative Analysis of Interactive 3D models for Learning E2 Reaction Stereochemistry
In this tutorial, students self-navigate through a series of pages that teach the stereochemistry of the E2 reaction in organic chemistry. Each page contains text, a color-coded line drawing, and an interactive Jmol. Students use each of the representations to help construct the difficult knowledge themselves, and students should be able to learn this difficult topic much more easily than if the 3D models were not present.
