Qualitative Analysis of Interactive 3D models for Learning E2 Reaction Stereochemistry
Philip Janowicz, California State University-Fullerton
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
Colleen Conway, Mount Mary College
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.

Molecular Modeling of Bond Type, Polarity, and Resonance Using Models 360
Darcy Mack, Pasadena City College
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.

ChemPath To Writing Chemical Names and Formulas
Fred Garces, San Diego City College
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
Weslene Tallmadge
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
Rie Somlai, Delta State University
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
Tammy Gummersheimer
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.

Web-based tutorial on VSEPR (Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion) Theory for General Chemistry
Lawrence McGahey, The College of Saint Scholastica
A web-based 3D tutorial and assessment quiz on molecular geometry using resources available through the ChemEd DL at

An Online, Interactive Lesson on Liquids and Intermolecular Forces
Donald Storer
This interactive, online lesson on liquids and intermolecular forces uses video clips, molecular models, and other resources from ChemEd DL.
