In this work, the teaching content of a theoretical-chemistry (TC) course is reformed, establishing a theoretical contents from microto macro-system, and comprehensively introducing the theory of chemical reaction to undergraduate students in chemistry. In order to develop such TC course based on the general physical-chemistry course, we focus on the “last-mile” problem between the physics and chemistry courses to train the critical thinking of undergraduate students in chemistry. To clearly… Expand
