Abstract

Advantages and scope for application of NetLogo programming environment in chemical discipline instruction have been considered for university curricula. Computer models designed by means of NetLogo language have been used for students’ self-administering tests to study gas laws within the frames of university course of inorganic chemistry. Model features, brief manuals as well as teachers’ guides and some examples of students’ tasks have been described. The use of computer modelling significantly improves both students’ understanding of a considered theme and work with graphics tasks. The effect is independent of the level of students’ basic training in chemistry.
