The article detailed a study Kim, joined by professors at the Rochester Institute of Technology and University of Nebraska-Lincoln, conducted related to how first-year undergraduate students understand the chemistry concept of resonance. The study looked at how students draw on prior knowledge to further master the subject, and which models can best help them correctly understand resonance.
