Our fundamental approach changes:

  • The inclination for students to try and memorize specific reactions without understanding how each works.

  • The tendency for students to compartmentalize information.

  • The difficulty of getting students to retain information in long-term memory.

  • The inability of students to apply organic chemistry principles to reactions not covered in class.

  • The tendency for students to show a poor understanding of how to apply fundamentals.

  • The tendency for students to not develop or engage critical thinking and analysis skills.
