The analysis of chemical phenomena with the help of models and analogies is more and more supported by powerful computers. Different representations of one molecule can be visualized instantaneously. Apart from simulating three dimensions, specific software components also allow the learner to rotate the visualized object. This interaction leads to an abundance of new information concerning the spatial construction of a molecule. Can students, especially novices in chemistry, profit from this… CONTINUE READING
