Thanks to Dr. Jon Njardarson, associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry, organic chemistry students now have a new learning tool in their back pocket - literally. In collaboration with the University of Arizona’s Office of Instructional Assessment, Dr. Njardarson released a new website, along with apps for iPods, iPhones, iPads and Androids: Chemistry By Design. On the surface, the website and apps provide an unique, interactive experience, allowing users to walk through the building of each molecule, one step at a time. Then, users can take quizzes to test their understanding of each sequence and every point along the process.
