    This course is for your visual learners who need high school credit in Chemistry. Wes Olson, the host of Biology 101, will take you on a journey through the history of chemistry along with what the study of chemistry is all about. This course is divided into nineteen 20-45 minute segments and examines the world of chemistry, the periodic table, important characters in the field of chemistry, the essentials of chemistry such as neutrons, isotopes, ions, compounds, molecules, and balancing chemical equations, an explanation of the elements – non-metals, poor metals, transition metals, rare earth & radioactive metals, and the future of chemistry. This is a 4 DVD set that has a running time of 10 hours, 55 minutes along with PDF files for the guidebook, accreditation booklet, and an extended periodic table.

    To get started with this program, you will want to print off the PDF files for the guidebook, periodic table and accreditation schedule, or take them somewhere to have them printed (the guidebook is over 120 pages). Students will be starting a chemistry notebook for this program in which they will write their research and reports. You will want to read ahead in the guidebook so you can gather and prepare needed items for the next lesson, mini-labs, and reports. The guidebook also allows the student to review information covered in the lessons along with quizzes and discussions questions. Mini-labs are demonstrated in the lessons and are performed with items from around your house or are easily accessible. I think the labs are much better and meatier than those found in Biology 101 and would do a much better job of meeting the high school credit. ~ Donna

    Although designed as a high school course, IPC can be an excellent science course for pre-high school students. The full course equates to two high school transcript credits: Physics and Basic Chemistry. Teachers can elect to have students complete all twelve chapters in one year to earn two transcript credits. Another option is to divide the course in half, selecting six chapters to be completed for one transcript credit for Conceptual Physics (chapters 2, 4, 6, 9, 10, 12) or six chapters for one credit in Basic Chemistry (chapters 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 11).

    Includes all texts, activity packets, and Teacher's Resource Kit w/ digital downloads.

    Chemistry is one of those difficult areas for the homeschooled student to compete effectively with their public school peers if Mom or Dad don't have much background except what they may (or may not!) have picked up in high school or college years ago. I think it's helpful to have a resource on hand that can provide a simple, direct explanations and examples of chemical problems, so they can look these things up when struggling through a textbook chemistry program. That's why I like these "Easy Way" books. They're large (this one at nearly 450 pages), they contain logically organized, and easy-to-find information to explain concepts, and then include a wealth of end-of-chapter review questions to offer the student more practice. They're designed to help the student struggling in a particular area, and they really break down concepts and examples, and provide the tools to challenge themselves to push ahead in that area. Chemistry contains 16 information-packed chapters on topics such as chemistry basics, atomic structure, bonding, chemical formulas, gases, chemical calculations and moles, phase changes, chemical reactions and their rates, chemical equilibrium, acids/bases/salts, oxidation/reduction, electrochemistry, organic chemistry, nucleonics, and more. Throughout the chapters, chemical equations are worked out to illustrate the concept, and many more are found at the end-of-chapter review, primarily in multiple choice form. At the end of the book are five practice tests as well as answers with explanations and a worksheet to analyze your performance. These will help pinpoint areas that you need to work on as well as areas you already understand. Following these are a collection of reference charts and tables, a periodic table, and a glossary. From someone who's had four semesters of college-level chemistry, it's apparent that this book covers a lot of bases, and the student who takes the time to use this tool and takes the time to understand the concepts will not only find high school chemistry a breeze, but they'll have a much firmer grasp on college chemistry as well. Formerly titled Chemistry the Easy Way. - Jess

    Have you been longing for a high school science course written like the Life of Fred math curriculum? Story format? Tongue in cheek humor? Cute little sidebar comments and rabbit trails that keep you reading? Dr. Stanley Schmidt has done it – Life of Fred Chemistry! Get your high school credit for chemistry in a very non-traditional way. The goal of Dr. Schmidt’s chemistry course is to teach you the “really basic stuff – such as the chemical symbol for carbon is C and that organic compounds are those that contain carbon” because to be a “well-educated adult, you probably don’t need to learn what a racemic mixture means.”

    The story begins at the chem lab down the hall from Fred’s math class when Joe didn’t follow proper lab safety and gets hurt (I don’t want to give away too much of the story). Through this scenario, students will learn about lab safety and the story proceeds from there as students learn about the size of gold atoms; weighing an atom; mass vs. weight; standard temperature; mole; scientific method and much more as the story unfolds.

    There are 36 short chapters and each concludes with Your Turn to Play. This is a set of questions (including math problems) to make sure you understand each chapter’s concepts. Complete solutions are found on the reverse side of the Your Turn to Play page. Note: there are no tests or labs to accompany this course. If you really want to do this course but need it to be a lab science, you could add the MicroChem Experiment Lab Kit (#020028). This self-contained lab kit comes with the chemicals needed and complete instructions (since no labs come in the Life of Fred Chemistry text). If you feel confident in your lab abilities, you could add the Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments (#027801) or 150 Captivating Chemistry Experiments Using Household Substances (#005436). Either of these books would allow you to add labs using familiar substances rather than hard-to-access chemicals. Dr. Schmidt recommends the use of a scientific calculator with the keys sin, cos, log, and ln. These are inexpensive calculators and we have one in the Rainbow Resource inventory that meets his ‘key’ recommendation, #041918.

    Algebra is always a prerequisite to doing chemistry; this course is no exception. The math begins on page 1 of the text with simplifying algebra equations. The math isn’t heavy, but you need to know your algebraic functions. Dr. Schmidt says that you need enough beginning algebra to understand basic algebra concepts.

    Dr. Schmidt believes that if chemistry is taught right, it can be a lot of fun! Do this as your stand-alone chemistry (with lab supplementation if desired) or read it alongside your chemistry curriculum to add that humorous element and have fun! ~ Donna

    Have some chemistry fun with Elementeo! Set in a medieval, mythological time, this strategy game will help you learn about 50 of the 118 elements of the Periodic Table through different levels of play. In the Element Level you will move and attack with your elements. In the Reaction Level you use the properties and reactions of elements to attack your opponent’s elements. Create compounds from elements and use them to win in the Compound Level. Use black holes, supernovas, nuclear reactions, and Newton’s Laws to help you in the Alchemy Level. The Fusion Level lets you create your own special fusion deck to conquer the chemistry world. The game includes 30 Electron chips, dice, playing board, 2 Element Decks (53 cards each), Compound Deck (25 cards), and Alchemy Deck (25 cards). Cards in this game are reflective of the medieval setting, and you will be helped along your way by the Helium Genie, Sulfur Wizard, Magnesium Magician, Phosphorous Phoenix, and an army of other elemental characters. For 2 to 4 players, commit the elements and their properties to memory as you create, combat, and conquer.

    Create fun soaps to keep or give to friends! Simply melt the glycerin in the microwave, add color and/or scents, pour in the molds, and let cool. Before you know it, you're ready for some good, clean fun! This kit comes with three 50g blocks of clear glycerin soap base, three 50g blocks of white glycerin soap base, 45g of purple, green, and red glycerin soap colorant (15g of each color), two stirring tools, 5 punch out and fold gift boxes, three plastic molds with 4-5 designs on each, and a directions/recipe book. Because the kit uses melt and pour glycerin, there are no potentially dangerous chemicals to work with. Each of the 50g blocks of glycerin is enough to make 3-5 soaps depending on which molds are chosen. The booklet shows how easy it is to melt the glycerin, but it also comes with lots of recipes for scents, exfoliation additives, and other ingredients to make skin healthy. While these are not included, many of them are probably available in your own kitchen if not the local grocery store. Such items include dried flower petals, cocoa butter, espresso beans, honey, Epsom salts, aloe vera, vanilla extract, and so much more! The booklet also explains the science behind how soap cleans, packaging ideas, and ideas to get you hooked. Perfect for your crafty child or as an intro into soap making. – Laura

    How well do you know the elements? If you’re not a pro, don’t worry – these cards will get you there! The basis of this freeform game is a set of 118 element cards. Each has a crowded but clean set of “quick reference” information: name, description, melting / boiling point, atomic number / symbol, etc. But the key to each card is a cartoon illustration of the element’s purpose or identity: cadmium, for example, is used in batteries and is depicted as a battery-powered robot. Each player starts with 5 cards and gameplay progresses through a series of “mini-game” challenges like War, Go Fish, or other classic card games, but with elements – comparing highest atomic value, for example. The first player to 10 collect cards wins. Other card & trivia games can be played with the Periodyx deck as well, but the most interesting aspect is certainly the cards themselves. Once you’re finished with the games, the can be easily integrated into chemistry studies as entertaining flash cards and other reference material! For 2-10 players.
