Due to emphasizing the abstractness and logic, Physical Chemistry is deemed as one of the most difficult subject for both chemistry and non-chemistry majors, which involved strong background of higher mathematics. Here, we try to discuss the teaching and learning issues related to this subject, and explore the solution to improving the teaching-learning efficiency.

Key words: Physical chemistry, Curriculum design, Teaching-learning interaction
