ChemAxon and Pearson announce the addition of ChemAxon's JChem, MarvinSketch,
and MarvinView as the chemistry tools in many of Pearson MasteringChemistry
courses. These tools evaluate chemical logic of submissions, allow students to
draw using state-of-the-art industry tools, and view and manipulate chemical
structures. Within MasteringChemistry, MarvinSketch allows a student to draw
and submit many types of chemical structures. The chemical logic (structure,
weight, charge, bonds) of the submission is then evaluated using the JChem
database. Once the submission is evaluated, the Mastering system provides
instant, specific feedback targeted at the student's misconceptions.
