This is the project website for Exploring Quantum Concepts in Chemistry: Active Discovery by Students in the General Chemistry Course. The project is funded by the Fund for the Improvement of Post Secondary Education (FIPSE), U.S. Department of Education.
Our objective is to find new ways to introduce quantum concepts into undergraduate chemistry education. We are seeking to do this through the development of interactive computer tools coupled with curriculum designed to support students' conceptual growth. We are experimenting with different ways of delivering our materials to students through group exercises, scaffolded computer activities, and associated experiments.
