  Abstract: It is clear that students have difficulty creating a physical interpretation of equations. This project is part of a larger study involving the interactions of physics, math, and chemistry learning. In this poster, we present findings from a study of student-generated diagrams that represent chemical equations. The results of the study indicate that while many students have difficulty creating representations of the equations, they are able to adapt and improve their model to include a variety of features.
