Increasing Students’ Success in Survey of Chemistry II Course


By increasing the students’ involvement in Survey of Chemistry II, the desired level of accountability can be reached in order for the student to properly grasp concepts of Organic and Biochemistry topics. The goal is to focus on the kinesthetic and visual learning capabilities of a student. By incorporating molecular models, drawing on whiteboards, and utilizing online technologies will help students grasp and retain difficult topics such as chemical structures, naming molecules, and writing chemical reactions. In addition, approaching the classroom setting as a study session supports the students’ ability to see the classroom as a discussion as opposed to a lecture. Ultimately, students are comfortable enough to participate in questions asked during class which allows them to think on concepts and apply them to the problem. To put it briefly, encouraging students to be active and engaging in a subject that is usually seen as intimidating can be a means of building confidence for learning the material.
