SILVA JUNIOR, José Nunes da; BARBOSA, Francisco Geraldo; LEITE JUNIOR, Antonio José Melo  and  EDUARDO, Valeska Mesquita. Resonance: development, use, and evaluation of an educational software. Quím. Nova [online]. 2014, vol.37, n.2, pp.373-376. ISSN 0100-4042.

Resonance is a useful concept that shows how electrons are shared between two or more atoms and allows a prediction of the chemical reactivity and relative stability of reagents, intermediates, and products. An educational software that enables interactive exploration of the concepts related to resonance and thereby facilitates its understanding was developed. The software was field-tested, and an evaluation questionnaire concerning the software as an educational tool was answered by the students and professors involved in the test. The results led to the conclusion that the developed computer application can be characterized as an auxiliary tool that assists teachers in their lectures and students in their learning process.

Keywords : resonance; teaching; educational software.
