Homeschool High School Chemistry


Recommended Posts

Forgive my ignorance, but can anyone tell me if this is "regular" chemistry or "honors" chemistry? I have a 6th grader and I don't yet understand the differences. I am just intrigued by the schedule for this with the Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments

 

Introductory Chemistry (5th ed) by Stephen Zumdahl 

 

I've not got that text here at home but, based on the TOC, I'd say it could be an honors text.  I think Zumdahl's "World of Chemistry" is his Reg Chem text.

Hi Dicentra,

I found a great book (Uncle Tungsten by Oliver Sacks) that I'd highly recommend as a living book resource for chemistry. I'm not sure where it would fit -- maybe in the "other resources" -- but I do think there's a lot of good chemistry in it.

Thanks, kiana!  That's on my "to read" list but I haven't gotten to it yet.  Soon, hopefully! 🙂

Done. 🙂

I really do need to update and clean up these lists.  Sigh - I need more hours in a day!! 😉 😄

Dicentra, your compilation of chemistry curriculum and resources is AWESOME!  And so are you for putting all this together for the rest of us!!

I'm looking for a very easy high school chemistry course.  The easiest, the least time consuming.  I want my daughter to at least have concepts and a few experiments.  She's had math through Algebra 2.  Any suggestions?  Thank you!

You're welcome. 🙂

I think there are a few courses/curricula listed at the very beginning of the Regular Chemistry post that are very basic - Chemistry Power Basics, Friendly Chemistry, Fascinating Chemistry.  There is also the Conceptual Chemistry textbook by John Suchocki.

As a chem teacher/instructor, there is a certain amount of content and a certain level of mathematical content that I would want to see in a chemistry course before I'd be comfortable labeling as high school chemistry (assuming we're talking about a neurotypical high school student and not a special needs student) but I know that there are varying thoughts on that amongst homeschoolers. 🙂

Hope that helps!
