Crossing Levels and Representations : The Connected Chemistry ( CC 1 ) Curriculum

  title={Crossing Levels and Representations : The Connected Chemistry ( CC 1 ) Curriculum},
  author={Sharona T. Levy and Uri Wilensky},
Connected Chemistry (named CC1 to denote Connected Chemistry Chapter 1) is a computer-based environment for learning the topics of gas laws and kinetic molecular theory in chemistry. It views chemistry from an ‘‘emergent’’ perspective, how macroscopic phenomena result from the interaction of many submicroscopic particles. Connected Chemistry employs agent-based models built in NetLogo (Wilensky, NetLogo, Northwestern University, Evanston, 1999a), embedded in scripts that structure and log the… CONTINUE READING
