Overview

chemist
Interactive discovery modules track the student's performance and provide interactive simulations and an incentive to perform the learning activity. Thirty five interactive discovery environments have been developed in Java including topics such as radioactive decay, orbital energies, uv-vis spectroscopy, chemical equilibrium and acids and bases

 

Details

In an integrated environment, the student is led to interact with the applets through specific questions. The initial questions help the student discover how to interact with the applet and additional questions help assimilate observations, formulate and test hypotheses, or reach conclusions. Initial response to these environments from students in the pilot group was favorable as they interacted with the limiting reagents and electromagnetic radiation applets.
