Excellent product
I bought the Biology 101 DVD years ago and enjoyed it but had another Chemistry curriculum I was satisfied with. When I saw the Chemistry 101 DVD, I debated buying it and waited since I didn't have a child studying chem at the time. Now, having a son doing HS chem at home, I decided to give it a try, even though I still have the other curriculum. I am NOT disappointed. My son LOVES these classes and looks forward to doing science everyday. After he finishes these, we will have plenty of time to move into the other course I use (a Great Courses HS Chemistry DVD course), and he will be better prepared for it. I feel he will have a greater love for chemistry as well. Also, the other course does not have the review of history that led to development of the periodic table and such. It has been rewarding to learn about the 19th century scientists who have brought us to where we are. When my daughter begins Chemistry, she will start with Wes's DVD series as well.

Chemistry for the history lover
Chemistry 101 is a great option for high schoolers who prefer viewing life from a history or literature point of view. Instead of teaching dry facts, Chemistry 101 introduces scientists, with interesting information about who they were and what they did, before diving into the chemistry that they discovered. This gives the student a connection with the concept, much more memorable than traditional chemistry textbooks. Explanations of difficult vocabulary are given, and repeated throughout the lesson, making memorization of terms and concepts much easier. Highly recommended.

The best high school science I have ever used
We enjoyed using biology 101. My 7th grader at the time we used biology 101 enjoyed watching and learning new things. So we are excited to get to use chemistry 101.

Highly recommended high school chemistry core
Chemistry 101 provides a solid historical context & clear explanations of foundational concepts in chemistry. Although weaker in hands on experiments, this is an excellent core program with unusual depth and clarity.

Excellent for middle schoolers
While I would only recommend this for a struggling high school student, this series makes an excellent middle school program. The videos are extremely well done presenting difficult scientific facts in a highly engaging format. On their own, the dvd's are worth the cost of the program, but there is so much more. The last dvd includes printables: a brief quiz and a 2-3 pages "chapter" summarizing each video episode as well as some charts and teacher helps. Used as a middle school or summer prep course, this program equips your child for high school sciences.

Very interesting and attention-holding My 13 yo who usually groans at having to do more work watched this for several hours on his own Very anxious for the Physics 101 to be available (Rainbow has best prices as always)

Came recommended from a mom whose son was not very interested in science. The videos were engaging and the video sessions informative.

We love this series as a supplement to our high school science studies. Fun and infomative!
Patricia R on Aug 28, 2018
My child is a visual learner and I feel like this curriculum is best suited for her. Not all kids are classical learners like most assume. Even in high school, learning should be interactive, fun and creative. This curriculum sounds like it is exactly what she needs
Cynthia B on Aug 10, 2018
my nephew really enjoyed the physics version so we are going to try the chemistry one.
Suzanne C on Jul 25, 2018
I chose this for my non-science oriented 11th grader. It had good reviews and seemed like it will be interesting.
Melissa R on Jul 18, 2018
I was very impressed with the Biology 101 DVD course. I'm looking forward to trying this with my sophomore.

Great high school program for "non Science" students. Easy to use and understand.

recommended by Timberdoodle and it seems like it should work for finishing up from a curriculum that was not working

My teenagers and younger children benefited from the Biology 101 DVD set, so I decided to try this as well.
Racheal A on Oct 29, 2017
Resisted because heard it was too "lite" for high school credit. However, when the popular high school curriculum is leaving them confused (and me near tears), is it really worth it? Going to use DVDs for basic understanding and hope it helps understanding and completion of labs (and adapted assignments) in our current curriculum.

My daughter used the Biology 101 and loved it. The videos were great and we were able to print off the tests from the cd. This was her first year to actually LIKE science.

We got this to use along with Integrated Physics and Chemistry. We love the Biology 101 DVDs. My son learns best with some audio/visual components. He has really enjoyed watching the DVDs & it has helped him understand what he is learning

In addition to Physics 101 by the recommendation of Deanna from Live Chat we are purchasing for the family.

This curriculum was an absolute life saver for my high school students who were in tears attempting to complete Aplogia chemistry. They actually ENJOYED this!

I love the format without a boring textbook.

I chose this item because it increases the chemistry in Heart of Dakota's Missions To Modern Marvels, from and 8th grade credit to a 9th grade credit.

DVD instruction and hope it will teach my non scientific daughter enough to cover her high school credit.
Carina A on Apr 5, 2016
We watched the sample of these dvds and our son would say "buy it" now and then because he was so into them. Also, my husband and I watched them with him and all 3 of us would say, "AHHHH!" at things we hadn't known before. Very engaging. We also love the Biblical perspective.

What level of math is required for this DVD pack Chemistry 101?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All it says is that it's for ages 15 and up. I used it for my two kids who at the time were 15 and 16 but my 13 year old watched the videos with them. My 16 year old was taking algebra 1 the same time as he did this course and averaged a B by the end of the course. We have also done the biology 101 and enjoyed it very much. Hope this helps.
Is this meaty enough for a college prep high school course?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We are only three weeks into this course, but I would say that this is a very fun engaging course that can be tailored to your child's learning type. Just doing the dvd and course booklet (in pdf form on the last cd) probably would not be meaty enough for collage prep.......But it would be a foundation to build on and certainly is laid out so it can be added to by internet research, field trips, etc......
If you have a child that isn't interested in science but has to do Chemistry to fulfill a credit, I think this is a great choice, very engaging, easy to follow and enjoyable to watch. I found myself walking away from my other tasks to watch this while my son was doing his lesson!
