Chemistry alternative to Apologia?

Recommended Posts

Chemistry alternative to Apologia

Apologia is proving to be too hard for my dd 16. I was wondering if any of you have switched to something else that was easier maybe less math intensive. I've researced some programs but it's so hard to tell without seeing them in person. Hoping someone else has been in this boat before and can offer some guidance.

 

thanks!

If you can borrow them (library, netflix) check out the Teaching Company's Chemistry lectures. Those aren't really a stand alone course, but could go along with Apologia to assist. His first few lectures explain the basics of the math really well - to get the concept of it - which then helps considerably doing it. If you then decide to buy, they are on sale - I just got mine for $40 with a special code. They're $80 without the code. I'm not sure how long the sale runs.

 

Otherwise, any high school Chemistry I've seen has been math intensive. There may be a middle school Chemistry out there somewhere that is purely conceptual. I'm not familiar with that level.
