Project Description

Undergraduate students often struggle with reconciling multiple representational models for complicated chemistry topics. This animation acts as an introduction to Michaelis-Menten dynamics, and uses multiple visual metaphors and analogies to help make the concepts accessible and memorable. This video covers the kinetics of alcohol dehydrogenase reactions and is intended for undergraduate biochemistry students.
