Wolfram Notebooks for Teaching Chemistry

Estimated Time: 50 min

Course Level: Beginner


Teaching chemistry in person and in hybrid and remote learning spaces remains challenging and nontrivial for educators at all levels. Access to reliable chemical data, molecular visualization and student computer literacy are just a few of the issues educators face. This video lesson discusses strategies and resources for meaningful interactive instruction and provides example electronic laboratory notebooks (ELN). Prior experience with Wolfram Notebooks is not required.

Featured Products & Technologies: Wolfram Language and Wolfram Notebooks (available in Mathematica, Wolfram|One and Wolfram|Alpha Notebook Edition)
