Give your student a firm understanding of the basics of chemistry with Apologia's Exploring Creation with Chemistry, 3rd Edition.
Sixteen modules cover measurement & units, atoms & molecules, atomic structure, molecular structure, polyatomic ions and molecular geometry, stoichiometry, acid-base chemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, chemical equilibrium, and more.
Experiments are designed for home-use, though some more "specialized" equipment is required; they include measuring specific heat, discovering the electrical conductivity of compounds dissolved in water, measuring the width of a molecule, exploring freezing point depression, using the ideal gas equation, recognizing the effects of catalysts, and more.
Lessons integrate "on your own" questions to check for review and comprehension throughout the lesson, as well as examples, tables, and images where helpful. Modules end with a "study guide" that includes review questions and practice questions, along with answers to the "on your own" questions.
Tests and Solutions are available in the "Tests and Solutions" set (sold-separately).
This revised 3rd edition features more in-depth discussions and explanations of concepts along with biographical sketches of Christian artists.
Prerequisites: Students must be proficient at an Algebra math level.
