If you have a hard time picturing what chemical formulas like NaCl or C6H8O7 (salt & citric acid) mean, get a molecular model kit and see for yourself how the elemental building blocks of different molecules bond together. This is a great tool for chemistry students who need to tinker with something as they learn. Another way to inspire understanding of chemical formulas is to get colorful and memorable periodic table charts or posters.
