Abstract

Computational chemistry programs have proven to be powerful research tools, and our project aimed to bring this technology to the classroom. We developed a teaching module based on the web-based software WebMO to address topics chemistry students typically struggle with. Through implementation of the curriculum at Millbury High School, it was found that the students generally possessed a stronger understanding of the topics addressed after using WebMO and that integration of computational chemistry into the classroom is a worthwhile endeavor.
