S55: Creative Uses of Computational Chemistry and Visualization in the Undergraduate Curriculum

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In addition to theory and experiment, computational modeling has become established as another tool to assist chemists in their work.  Advances in computer hardware and software have now made these tools available to everyone.  This symposium will highlight innovative ways that these tools are being used to enhance the learning experience of students in the undergraduate chemistry curriculum.  Activities that involve molecular modeling, visualization, simulation, mathematical software, and other computational methods will be highlighted.  Course-specific examples as well as efforts that integrate computation throughout the curriculum will be included.
