3-D Interactive Chemistry Demo’s for Teaching NMR Concepts

Title3-D Interactive Chemistry Demo’s for Teaching NMR Concepts
Duration1 Year
Project Summary

To design and produce a set of computers based, interactive 3D modules to be used in both 3rd and 4th year undergrad and 5th year grad courses in the Chemistry dept. The teaching and learning area we want to affect is the subject of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR). We want to design 3D demos that address the difficult concepts of “spin Physics” necessary to understand NMR. These lecture demos will be tested for effectiveness using input from, and testing of students. These NMR concepts would be more easily grasped with animated 3D graphics. We will use inexpensive and free software that is easily implemented and use computer literate undergrad students to build the demos.
