Pearson adds ChemAxon's suite of chemistry tools to MasteringChemistry products

news · 7 years ago
ChemAxon and Pearson announce the addition of ChemAxon’s JChem, MarvinSketch, and MarvinView as the chemistry tools in many of Pearson MasteringChemistry courses. These tools evaluate chemical logic of submissions, allow students to draw using state-of-the-art industry tools, and view and manipulate chemical structures. Within MasteringChemistry, MarvinSketch allows a student to draw and submit many types of chemical structures. The chemical logic (structure, weight, charge, bonds) of the submission is then evaluated using the JChem database. Once the submission is evaluated, the Mastering system provides instant, specific feedback targeted at the student’s misconceptions. Mastering is the most effective and widely used online homework, tutorial, and assessment system for the sciences. It delivers self-paced tutorials that focus on course objectives, provide individualized coaching, and respond to each student’s progress. Mastering helps instructors maximize class time with easy-to-assign, customizable, and automatically graded assessments that motivate students to learn outside of class and arrive prepared for lecture or lab. Note: The development was discussed at ChemAxon's 2012 US User Group Meeting and the original slides and video are included below. Download slides
