In this isomer worksheet, students use molecular model kits to build isomers. Students work in groups and draw and name the isomers they build. They answer 9 questions about both geometric and structural isomers.
Students create models of structural isomers, geometric isomers, and polymers.  In this chemistry lesson, students are given definitions and molecular model kits to create a variety of different isomers and polymers.
In this isomer learning exercise, students draw as many different isomers for thirty given molecules and indicate how many isomers are possible.
In this isomers worksheet, students define isomers and then draw the different isomers for the given chemical formulas. This worksheet has 30 problems to solve.
Sal works through a list of examples that demonstrate and review the different types of compound classification.
In this isomer worksheet, students learn about the structures of isomers and then they draw the isomers for six organic compounds.
In this geometric isomers worksheet, students are given five molecules and they write the cis and trans isomers for each. They then name four bow-tie structures and identify if they are cis or trans.
In this isomers activity, students write and label the cis-trans isomer for the given compounds. Students name the compounds shown in the bow-tie structures. This activity has 2 problems to solve.
Sal works through a list of examples that demonstrate and review the different types of compound classification.
In this conformational analysis worksheet, students are given organic molecules and they draw Newman projections, Haworth projections and sawhorse projections. They also draw cis and trans isomers for molecules.
In this organic chemistry worksheet, students solve 20 problems including isomer structure, functional groups, types of reactions and the polymers that make up the structures of organic molecules.
In this organic molecules worksheet, students draw molecules given their names, they draw line isomers for a given compound, they predict products of reactions, they write equations for hydration reactions and they write chemical equations.
In this organic compounds instructional activity, students write the structural formulas for four compounds, they draw isomers for given molecules and they draw line formulas for given cycloalkanes and haloalkanes.
Though there are technically only 13 questions on this exam, they take up six pages and make a thorough assessment of organic chemistry principles. There are plenty of diagrams to label or complete. Emission spectra are displayed for interpretation. Topics evaluated include valence bond theory, functional groups, chair conformations, acid base reactions, molecular geometry, and IUPAC names. 
This five-page exam was designed for a biochemistry and organic chemistry course. It covers the molecular geometry and properties of organic comounds. Test takers identify compounds, functional groups, and isomers. They draw Lewis structures and the products of chemical reactions. 
Here is an interactive presentation on molecular geometry if you have materials for building molecule models along the way. Isomerism is introduced by means of a graphic organizer. Viewers then imitate two molecule models and learn that though they have the same chemical makeup, the structures are not transposable. A system for naming isomers is also introduced. This is a valuable teaching tool to add to your chemistry curriculum.
In this compounds instructional activity, students write the structural formula for a given compound. Students draw all line isomers for a given compound. Students name the compounds from their structural formula. This instructional activity has 8 problems to solve.
In this alkane reactions worksheet, students define combustion and write the balanced equations for the combustion reactions. Students write the structural formulas of the products including all possible isomers and their percent formation. This worksheet has 3 problems to solve.
The first two pages of this resource may not be useful as they contain a narrative as to how someone can improve their grade on an organic chemistry exam. The final page, however, contains four sample MCAT exam questions. You could use this page as a pop quiz for your emerging organic chemists, or simply distribute it as practice for the MCAT. Problems address isomer structure, carbocation, reactivity, and more. 
Framed as an organic chemistry practice test, this resource could be used for a variety of purposes. Composed of 15 questions about organic compounds such as isomers, alkynes, alkenes and amines, and other topics related to organic chemistry, this could be used as a test, a review, an in-class activity, or a homework assignment. Answers are provided.
