Description

One of the perennial limiting factors for students learning chemistry is their inability to imagine molecules in three-dimensions.  We have bridged this gap by employing new technologies to create state of the art three-dimensional animations within our text.  Uniquely presented, students learn how to take a two-dimensional molecule off the blackboard during lecture and fold it into three-dimensions or envision a molecule in three-dimensions from a page in a book, which is arguably the most essential skill when learning Chemistry.  Starting with the atomic orbital theory, the sp3, sp2, and sp hybrid orbitals are developed and utilized within many supplementary examples allowing the student exposure to Newman projections, conformational analysis, geometric isomers, deviations from ideal bond angles, nitrogen inversion, and many other interesting topics.  Uniquely presented, the visuals found within this text have helped label this text, “a must have” to enhance the students understanding of how atoms within a molecule are oriented in three-dimensions.  After all, the student who has the ability to visualize molecules in three-dimensions is rewarded with a better understanding of chemical properties, physical properties, and most importantly, the ability to predict chemical reactivity.
Runtime for visuals total approximately: 30 Minutes

From Ivy League Colleges to High Schools our products help thousands of students master the basics of chemistry!
Our visuals are being used in over 30 countries in hundreds of colleges and high schools!
