Using Tactile Learning Aids for Students with Visual Impairments in a First-Semester Organic Chemistry Course
Poon, Thomas; Ovadia, Ronit
Journal of Chemical Education, v85 n2 p240-242 Feb 2008
This paper describes two techniques for rendering visual concepts encountered in an organic chemistry course into tactile representations for students who have low vision. The techniques--which utilize commercially available products--facilitate communication of organic chemistry between student and instructor. (Contains 1 figure, 2 tables and 1 note.)
