Employing a conversational tone and an easily navigated, personalized format, Exploring Creation with Chemistry Student Text presents your high schooler with the rigorous foundation in chemistry needed to be well prepared for college-level studies. This award-winning 3rd edition offers more in-depth discussion and explanations of concepts, a more user-friendly flow of topics, as well as biographical sketches of Christian scientists with a biblical worldview who have made a difference in their field while giving the glory to God. Algebra I is a prerequisite to this program. The lab experiments are designed for the home; however, some are easier with specialized equipment.
Topics covered in the 16 modules include significant figures, units, classification, the mole concept, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, acids and bases, 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.
