Teaching Chemistry with Computers

Hua-Jun Fan, Joshua Heads, Daniel Tran, and Nnenna Elechi

Abstract—With a new generation of undergraduate students who are savvy with technologies and computers, coupled with the advancements in computer hardware and software development, the learning curve of computational chemistry is diminishing. We demonstrate various modules that can be used not only to illustrate the difficult concepts in chemistry education, but also to provide the hands-on experience that allow students to generate their own data and conclusions.

Index Terms—Computational chemistry, molecular modeling, undergraduate chemistry curriculum, American chemical society.
