    For economy purposes and ease of shopping, a bundle can be purchased that includes the textbook, tests, and solutions manual (CHM3ST). Algebra 1 is a prerequisite to doing this course and is important for solving and understanding chemical equations. If using Exploring Creation with Chemistry in a co-op setting, this new 3rd edition will not work with the older editions. Changes are significant enough that students will all need the same edition.

    This new edition of Exploring Creation with Chemistry makes chemistry approachable and doable in a homeschool setting. Now authored by Kristy Plourde, you will notice a few changes from previous editions.

    The chapter order has been changed from the previous editions (1st and 2nd) of the curriculum. There are still 16 modules measurement, units, and the scientific method, atoms and molecules, atomic structure, molecular structure, polyatomic ions and molecular geometry, changes in matter and chemical reactions, describing chemical reactions, stoichiometry, acid-base chemistry, chemistry of solutions, gas phase, energy/heat and temperature, thermodynamics, kinetics, chemical equilibrium, and reduction-oxidation reactions. The front of the book offers a suggestion on how to use the book and the length of time typically spent to complete the course. "On Your Own" questions are found throughout the modules and are to be completed as the student reads the text answers are included at the end of the module. "Review Question" and "Practice Problems" are found at the end of each module to help students recall and apply important concepts presented in that module. The text is generous with examples, illustrations, and photos for clarity of concepts.

    Some helpful resources are found at the back of the text glossary, tables/laws/equations, extra practice problems for each module, and a complete list of lab supplies.

    Experiments are homeschool-friendly and can be completed using the lab kit (#008778) that is assembled by Nature's Workshop and items that are easily accessible. If you want to do more advanced experiments, you can purchase the MicroChem Lab Kit (#020028). These experiments aren't printed in the student text, but are mentioned and marked by a flask and test tube symbol along with where that experiment can be found in the MicroChem Manual. The experiments in this 3rd edition are a combination of some new ones and the tried-and-true from the previous editions. If you don't want or need to purchase the lab kit (#008778), the required items to complete experiments are a 1 mass scale (0 to 500 grams), blue and red litmus paper, 1 thermometer (-10 to 110 degrees C). If you have these three items, the text makes suggestions within the experiments for household substitutions of the other items needed.

    A special website is available to accompany this course, offering web links and additional information for specific concepts. The web address is printed in the front of the text with instructions for access. Textbook is now in the 4th printing. ~ Donna.

    The Student Notebook is a handy companion to the course. It provides formatted pages on which to write the answers to the text questions – On Your Own, Study Guide Questions, Practice Problems, and Extra Practice Problems. Experiment instructions are in the student notebook along with space for recording observations and data and making notes. There is also space for recording the optional MicroChem experiments. A suggested schedule will keep the student on track to finish the course. This notebook isn't included in the bundle, but is sold separately.

    An introductory history of chemistry, this extremely readable text covers discoveries and developments from ancient to present times. Major emphasis is placed on the contributions of individual scientists (such as Cavendish, Mendeleev, Boyle, and Rutherford) and how they made their discoveries. The focus is not on balancing chemical equations or learning the number of electrons in specific elements. 16 chapters cover: ancient metals (iron, lead, tin), money metals (gold, silver, copper), the search for gold, gases in the air, the use of currents to separate elements, the first periodic table, using a spectroscope to identify elements, cathode ray tubes and alpha particle experiments, compounds by electric attraction, water and its unique properties, carbon and its compounds, organic chemistry, nitrogen and its compounds, silicon and its compounds, modern metals, and chemistry in today's world.

    This science kit is designed to introduce early science and chemistry concepts to very young kids through fun and engaging activities. Eight suggested activities are given in the experiment book, including investigations on solubility of different powders, pH, how the temperature of water affects solubility, evaporation of salt water to make dissolved salt "reappear," investigating gelatin and color, and microscopic investigations. Included in the kit are gelatin, baking soda, citric acid, a Petri dish, measuring spoon, blank and prepared slide, pH testing strips, small capped containers, small magnifier, pipette, two plastic cups, and a simple but decent small plastic microscope. A nice thing about this kit is that a lot all the materials are safe, the investigations don't require a lot of time, and older kids can even do them with younger ones. And of course, the materials are commonly-used and easily "refillable" if they get hooked. - Jess
