Learn Organic Chemistry Reaction Cards 1

Aaron M. Hartel

Learn Organic Chemistry: Reaction Cards 1 will help you learn the reactions commonly encountered in a first semester organic chemistry course. In just seconds, you can set up a deck of flash cards for the reaction topics of your choice. You can configure the flash cards to hide any reaction component (reactant, reagent or product) which is then revealed upon “flipping” the card. You can even hide the reaction name separately to help you learn named reactions.

Features:

-Over 70 reactions covering:
Electrophilic additions of alkenes, alkynes and dienes
Nucleophilic substitutions
Eliminations
Radical reactions
Organometallic reactions

-Useful notes for each reaction regarding stereoselectivity, regioselectivity and reaction limitations

-Hide any reaction component (reactant, reagent or product), great for learning to think synthetically

-Delete reactions in a deck that are not covered in your class and you don’t need to learn

-Created by an award winning professor of chemistry

Edjuvinator, Inc

Appidemic education games create an engaging experience for students by subject areas, this game focuses on Chemistry with over 900 questions. In single player mode review concepts in a race against time to accumulate a high score and then share it out with other apps. In Challenge Mode go against friends or classmates and be quizzed with the same questions presented in different sequences per player so when used in the classroom makes cheating difficult. As soon as all players finish the system announces the winner. The timer adapts per question based on how much reading is involved. The points are out of 100 and when a question is answered within the first few seconds you receive full points and then it goes down incrementally as time ticks down to 0. This helps sharpen speed reading for understanding and recalling an answer quickly and confirming it with the answer choices. Questions can easily be added by contacting us using an in app form. Once the question and answer is verified it will be inserted into the game! This app is great for review and for assessments and was created by teachers for teachers.
