No matter what your student’s aspirations, the thorough understanding of Chemistry gained through the use of this text will give him/her the technical foundation for it. This textbook is the basis of an honors, curriculum for college-bound high school students. This concise text takes the same logical progressive approach to chemistry that The Rainbow student has come to rely upon. Our students will recognize the concise nature of the book and the conversational, humorous writing style (although, to a mature audience) and the technically sound content.
This course involves a brief, daily reading two days a week. The readings are accentuated with colorful photographs and illustrations for reinforcement. Each lesson is followed by exercises to test the students reception and comprehension of the day’s concept. The exercises are often mathematically intensive to develop the student’s analytical and computational capabilities. They will also require the student to develop maturity in working through problems guided by his own logical sense of the problems rather than being hand-held through example problems. A third day in the week is used to demonstrate the principles through hands-on laboratory activities in the Home Laboratory workbook.
