Session Title

Nomenclature - Mail Man Analogy: Implementing Elaborate Visual Analogies in Organic Chemistry

Session Format

Poster Session (60 minutes)

Location

Nessmith-Lane Conference Center Lobby

Abstract for the conference program

Analogies play a significant role in scientific teaching. It can be used as a transition to introduce a novel abstract concept. The main aim of this project is to utilize visual analogies in one of the important topics in organic chemistry i.e: “Nomenclature” (naming organic compounds). A mail-man “character” is used to remember the rules needed for the naming system.’’
