McGraw-Hill Connect® Chemistry is a web-based, interactive assignment and assessment platform that incorporates cognitive science to customize the learning process. Through careful observation of real students and active instructors we have been able to evolve the online homework tool to an online learning and engagement tool. The goal of Connect is to usher in a new era of meaningful online learning that balances the conceptual and calculated aspect of this most vital discipline.
McGraw-Hill offers students and instructors an enhanced digital homework experience using Connect Chemistry. Each problem within Connect Chemistry carries the text problem-solving methodology and is tailored with specific hints, as well as answer-specific feedback for common incorrect answers—all written by the author, Jason Overby. Several rounds of editorial and chemical accuracy checking, in addition to numerous instructor and student tests of all problems, ensure the accuracy of all content.
In addition to the specific hints and feedback provided for all questions, many questions allow students a chemical drawing experience that can be assessed directly inside of their homework. Connect Chemistry utilizes PerkinElmer’s ChemDraw, which is widely considered the “gold standard” of scientific drawing programs and the cornerstone application for scientists who draw and annotate molecules, reactions, and pathways. This collaboration of Connect and ChemDraw features an easy-to-use, intuitive, and comprehensive course-management and homework system with professional-grade drawing capabilities.
Problems from this textbook are served up in Connect for instructors to build assignments that are automatically graded and tracked through reports that export easily to Excel. Within Connect, instructors can also create and share materials with colleagues.
