Using Three-Dimensional Models to Teach Molecular Structures in High School Chemistry.
Copolo, Cynthia F.; Hounshell, Paul B.
Journal of Science Education and Technology, v4 n4 p295-305 Dec 1995
Compares the effects of using two- and three-dimensional model representations of molecular structures on student learning of organic chemical structures. Reports that students using both three-dimensional computer models and ball-and-stick models scored higher on the three-dimensional retention test of isomeric identification but lower on a similar two-dimensional test.
