Our award-winning 3rd edition high school chemistry course offers more in-depth discussions and explanations of concepts, a more user-friendly flow of topics, as well as biographical sketches of Christian scientists who have made a difference in the field while giving the glory to God. This course provides a rigorous foundation in chemistry in order to prepare your student for college-level studies.
Please note, this is the softcover student textbook only. You will need the Solutions and Tests Manual to complete this course.
High school students who study chemistry with Apologia are equipped not only for future college studies but more importantly, life! We aren’t just an academically rigorous textbook. Using a conversational tone, we present challenging science concepts and thought-provoking experiments in an easily navigated, personalized format to help students methodically learn, self-check, and master difficult concepts before moving on. We keep science relevant as well as in its proper place as the means to explore creation!
We recommend that students taking this course be proficient at an algebra math level. Topics include significant figures, units, classification, the mole concept, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, acids and basics, redox reactions, solutions, atomic structure, Lewis structures, molecular geometry, gas laws, and equilibrium. Experiments 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 much more.
Exploring Creation with Chemistry, 3rd Edition, provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general chemistry, as well as a multitude of chemistry lab experiments that develop the concepts further.
The 16 modules and their experiments in this course cover:
Measurement, Units, and the Scientific Method.
Atoms and Molecules
Polyatomic Ions and Molecular Geometry
Changes in Matter and Chemical Reactions
Describing Chemical Reactions
The Chemistry of Solutions
The Gas Phase
Energy, Heat, and Temperature
The experiments in this chemistry course require mostly common household materials in addition to the Chemistry Glassware Set, which contains the tools and utensils to complete the experiments.
