The imbalance between teaching and learning, because of individual difference and the simplicity of teaching, can lead to interest losing on study, which will hinder the further learning. Here, based on the course content, certain scientific software are introduced in chemical laboratory lesson before and after class, thus, students can understand the experimental phenomena with the assistant of this teaching approach. Then laboratory lesson is connected with theory lessons to demonstrate the compounds they synthesized during experiment through a scientific software. The design helps the students understand the role of the software in judging and solving scientific issues. At last, the teaching practice is summarized and reconsidered to point out the essentials in the designing process.

Key words: Chemistry teaching, Scientific software, Laboratory teaching, Theory teaching
