Taking chemistry course now now?
Somewhat lost in the world of chemistry? It might be the chemistry course at high school or college level, or the chemistry test prep needed for the upcoming exam.
No one is born to be a chemist. You can become a chemist or smart student in chemistry by simply building your basic chemistry instincts. What are they?
Secret No.1 – Think chemistry at the molecular level. In most part, chemistry is invisible at the microscopic level. You have to use your imagination. Try to build your basic chemistry instinct by thinking it molecularly. Here is a simple example. When someone mentions water, rather than thinking of a raindrop or a blue sea, you should first picture H2O; an oxygen atom bonded to two hydrogen atoms – the building blocks of water.
Secret No. 2 – Visualize chemistry in 3D. You are trained to read the textbook with 2D drawing of molecules, but keep in mind that chemistry is in the 3D world. Use a 3D model or train your mind to picture any molecular structure in 3D. This would be your second basic chemistry instincts.
Secret No. 3 – “See” chemistry in electronic structure. Chemistry is about electrons, where are they and where to go next? If you see a 3D model, they are not stick-and-ball, rather electron cloud. Learn the basic chemistry by understanding its electronic structure theories.
How do you incorporate these three approaches above into one learning system? The answer is two-words – Rapid Learning!
Here is the easy three steps of Rapid Learning:
Step 1: Study all the core concepts and learn how to solve problem step by step via rich-media video tutorial.
Step 2: Practice the problem solving with the game-based interactive drill
Step 3: Super Review the summary cheatsheet.
The best way is to learn chemistry visually, since chemistry is a visual science. The rapid learning series in chemistry is rich-media visual learning tool to make the study of basic chemistry easy and fast.
