What struck me most was this statement from a chemistry teacher:

“When I see a chemical reaction on a piece of paper, I don’t see coefficients and symbols, I see a bucket of molecules reacting,” Stoltzfus said. “But I don’t think our students see that big bucket of molecules. We can give students a better idea of what’s happening at a molecular level with animations and interactive elements.”

I am curious to know if teachers at our school use the iPad in this way and if so, do they observe the same reactions from the students?
