Rearrangement reaction is one of the most important contents in the course of college organic chemistry. These reactions can be found in many chapters, and might be easily forgotten by students in the learning process. Thus, it is of great importance to carry out inductive teaching for relevant contents. Herein, we summarize and analyze in depth the rearrangement reactions involved in college organic chemistry. These analyses at the mechanism level are beneficial for understanding and memorizing of the reactions. In addition, the application of inductive analysis of rearrangement reactions in teaching practice through several cases is also introduced. The results show that this teaching method played an important role in promoting the understanding and mastery of relevant knowledge. Similar method can also be applied to the teaching process toward other systematic knowledge.

Key words: College organic chemistry, Rearrangement reaction, Reaction mechanism, Inductive teaching
