Recommended for Grades 9+
Conceptual Chemistry Contextual takes a “sideways” approach to Conceptual Chemistry in which the social and environmental applications of chemistry take center stage along side the development of chemistry concepts. Although there is a greater emphasis on the topics of chemistry, this curriculum still provides for a solid foundation by embracing Conceptual Chemistry’s carefully crafted spiral approach whereby key concepts are revisited throughout the textbook—each time in a different light and with greater depth. The author himself teaches his college courses using this approach. It’s challenging, but fun! Recommended for students who are not likely to pursue a career in science or technology.
