Abstract

Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion and Valence Bond Theories pose great difficulties for chemistry students. Using Authorware, we developed a user-friendly computer tutorial with multiple interactions and animations, an interactive glossary, periodic table, and practice problems and quizzes with personalized feedback. Students will use hyperlinks to move throughout the tutorial at their own pace, will be able to revisit sections of interest for extra help, and look up key words in the glossary. Three-dimensional molecular models and movie clips help students visualize molecular structure and hybridized orbitals. To encourage active participation and practice, students will be given short segments of text accompanied by a graphic, followed by several practice problems. End-of-chapter review questions will be similar in scope and form to those that students encounter on course exams.
