Description

Discovering Design with Chemistry is a high school chemistry course designed for students who have completed Algebra I. This independent-study, college-preparatory course covers fundamental aspects of chemistry such as the classification of matter, atomic structure, spectroscopy, chemical bonding, molecular geometry, physical change, chemical change, stoichiometry, solutions, ideal gases, acid/base chemistry, reduction/oxidation reactions, thermochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, and chemical equilibrium. Weaving together concepts and their mathematical applications, the course teaches students how to think as a chemist so they can analyze the major changes that occur in matter.

The course contains 46 separate experiments that illustrate various concepts being explored. Many are quantitative in nature, including measuring the wavelength of microwaves, determining the number of water molecules in a hydrated compound, calculating percent yield, measuring the concentration of a hydrogen peroxide solution, determining the concentration of acetic acid in vinegar, measuring the specific heat of a metal, and determining the change in enthalpy for a chemical reaction. Others are qualitative, such as performing flame tests, examining the interference of light waves, comparing metals to nonmetals, exploring Boyle’s Law, doing litmus tests, and electroplating.

Throughout the course, the student is shown how chemistry reveals the amazing design that exists all around us. From the details of atomic structure to the makeup of the very air that we breathe, chemistry shows us the marvelous handiwork of God.

This product is a set consisting of both the textbook and the answer key and tests booklet containing everything the parent/teacher needs to know for the subject.

Testimonials

"My daughter is doing quite well going through [this] by herself. I have a minor in Chemistry and many of these things were never explained so clearly to me."

"[He] thought the Discovering Design was easier to read and understand, he preferred the experiments, and he favored the periodic table with two digits past the decimal."

"We are using this for our chemistry class. This is a rigorous yet student friendly resource. There are accompanying resources for book owners online as well. Be sure and check those out."

"...my teens used your high school chemistry textbook. Now they are doing dual enrollment in chemistry at our local university. They are taking the general chemistry for engineers and premed students. Class average for their midterm was in the 60s. [My daughter] made 100. [My son] made an 84 (but this is his first dual enrollment class/midterm). They are way ahead of the rest of the class in their knowledge base. Praise the Lord! Thank you so much for writing that book. You truly have the heart of a teacher."

"The more I discover this book, the more I wished I had it in my hand when I was doing grade 12 chemistry. Sigh. I would probably have obtained better grades..."
