To Students

This website provides useful and interesting information to enhance the understanding of structural concepts and to supplement class studies. The level of contents spans from first year to fourth year of a typical undergraduate course.

The contents of the website can be used in different ways:

  1. You can look at any particular chapter after you have been introduced to a concept in the classroom to help you to gain a better understanding.
  2. You can use the website to revise what you have learnt in the past.
  3. You may ask yourself if you can think of another model which is able to illustrate a concept listed (or indeed one that is not listed) or another example which shows the application of a concept.

Some of the models in the website were developed by our students as they knew which concepts were difficult to understand and which concepts could be physically demonstrated.

We have developed the website as a student centered learning resource for assisting students with the second way of learning. This practice has been summarised in a commissioned article that can be found at:
