I used KembloX in my classes.  I wasn’t sure about one class since I seem to have a few very vocal people who get on everyone else’s nerves but it worked well.  I figured that they were all adults and they could just make it work.  One student said that she had never understood it before using the models and that made me happy.

Hope all is well with you!  Enjoy the month to come.

Hope this email finds you well and enjoying this beautiful weather!! I just wanted to share with you some pictures I took this morning of our Gen Chem lab performing a lab exercise using your models.  They really seem to be enjoying it and getting much out of it!!

How KembloX Helped Me Learn

Let me start off first by saying what a helpful little tool these KembloX were to me. Using the blocks I was able to get a hands on perspective of how all types of atoms bond together. I started off with a fairly simple compond, calcium fluoride made with 1 calcium and 1 fluoride atom. However that was chemically impossible seeing how it was not a complete cuboid. So I added an extra electron which represents an anion and made the correct representation. It was actually a pretty fun way to learn a somewhat complex concept. Overall, the blocks significantly helped with furthering my knowledge about chemical ionic compounds.

Benedict,

My class on Tuesday is in room 3066 in Warwick from 10 AM to noon.  If you can make it, that would be wonderful but I understand if you are busy.  I plan to do a variation of your game and have them work in small groups.  I feel so daring, like I am moving into a new type of teaching/learning!  Thank you!

Hope you have a great weekend!

I am not surprised your KembloX worked well!  They are fun and very helpful.  Have fun in the lab!  I am looking forward to using them again the next time I teach Basic Skills.

Hope all is well!
