Success in organic chemistry courses and on exams such as the MCAT, GRE or DAT requires learning to think visually. Hands-on practice is critical to success.
Memorizing terms and formulas might get you through general chemistry, but may lead to failure in organic chemistry.
Chair conformations, called ring flips, offer great exercises in spatial reasoning, which is key for mastering organic chemistry. Yet hand drawing these cyclohexane chair forms can be tricky.
We created this game to prove organic chemistry can be visual, tactile and, yes, entertaining.
This visual pattern puzzle game provides a fun and fast method for mastering chair (or cyclohexane) ring flips.
Chairs! takes the mystery out of ring flips by offering instant feedback. During game play, as levels increase, so too does the complexity of these organic chemistry puzzles against the clock. There’s no need to understand organic chemistry to play.
With over 13 challenging levels, we will help you master this tough concept with ease.
