Item Details

Many students struggle in high school chemistry, feeling confused and uncertain even if they earn a good grade. Why? What can be done to help students succeed in this vitally important course? Success in chemistry doesn't require any special intellectual gifts or talents or advanced mathematical skill--it does require grasping the ideas behind key topics in chemistry. This course is designed to give students a deep and thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts and problem-solving skills needed in the study of chemistry. Professor Cardulla makes use of visual aids including illustrations, graphs, demonstrations, and diagrams that support learning and help students gain a deeper understanding of key concepts. This course is ideal for home schoolers, students having difficulty with chemistry, adults who are seeking a GED or are trying to prepare for college chemistry after many years away from the classroom, or anyone who wants to overcome their anxiety regarding chemistry.
