Conceptual Chemistry Honors Version Online Course
Conceptual Chemistry builds a conceptual base from which students may view nature more perceptively by helping them visualize the behavior of atoms and molecules and showing them how this behavior gives rise to our macroscopic environment. Numerical problem-solving skills and memorization are not stressed. Instead, chemistry concepts are developed in a storytelling fashion, with the frequent use of analogies and tightly integrated illustrations. Questions are designed to challenge students’ understanding of concepts and their ability to synthesize and articulate conclusions.
Conceptual Chemistry Honors Version from Conceptual Academy - High School Level Science
Honors Version (25 – 36 weeks)
Recommended for Grades 9+
Conceptual Chemistry – Honors Version leads the student through the entire Conceptual Chemistry curriculum. Each lesson focuses on a series of related concepts. These lessons build upon each other to create a unit, which has a particular theme, such as the stickiness of molecules. All the units, in turn, combine to give the student a solid foundation in the basic concepts of chemistry and the ability to view nature from the perspective of atoms and molecules. Recommended for motivated students seeking a broad understanding of the concepts of chemistry. Works well as a preparation for college general chemistry, but only when the student also has strong math skills.
There are 4 Choices for Conceptual Chemistry
There are four flavors of chemistry courses, each using the Conceptual Chemistry textbook and each presented by its author, John Suchocki.
