After years of teaching inorganic chemistry, it is found that many students lack knowledge of the four quantum numbers in the content of material structure, which seriously affects their learning of the following content. In order to help students to get out of the dilemma, we use analogy teaching method and use the "virtual classroom and teaching building" model to visualize the content of the abstract four quantum numbers. The results show that the students' mastery degree is better than that of previous years, which indicates that the current analogy teaching method has achieved satisfactory teaching effect.

Key words: Virtual classroom and teaching building, Inorganic chemistry, Four quantum numbers, Method of analogy teaching
