Who doesn't just love Dr. Wile's science curriculum
Dr. Wile wrote yet another fantastic chemistry curriculum. Included is a pass key to more online video's and extra practice problems and their worked out solutions. For a high school chemistry class you can't go wrong here.

Clear for students, easy for parents
We've been using Discovering Design with Chemistry this school year. Both my son and I find the book to be clearly written. Dr. Wile makes the concepts easy to understand--or as easy as chemistry can get. I know Dr. Wile has a webpage for extra help, but with the practice problems, comprehension questions, and chapter review we haven't needed it yet. You will need this webpage to mark the errata he found in this edition.
The Answer Key and Tests book is very beneficial to me as a mom. (It's necessary--unless you're in a co-op and the teacher is doing all of the grading.) It starts with information of how to record lab work, assessing your student, and calculating his final grade. All of the Chapter Review questions and Test questions are solved step-by-step. I especially appreciate the test answers since I am not a chemistry expert. Dr. Wile lists how many points each problem is worth, and breaks down those points in the solution. That makes it easier to know how much partial credit I can award if the answer wasn't exact.
Once you buy the book, you download the notebook, print what you need at home, and organize it anyway you want.

I chose this because it is well-regarded, used by a respected web-course provider as their curriculum, and it looks completely doable at home, especially with the video option provided by Dr. Wile.

Coop science class chose this text because of several years of using J Wile texts and liking them! The experiments look more interesting and explanations better than old Exploring Creation with Chemistry.

Does this course come with any type of companion such as notebook journal or lab manual that students write in?
Rebecca D on Jan 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, it's just a textbook and answer key. My students type up their lab reports. The website has a lot of helpful videos and extra practice problems.
how many credits is this course worth?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A full year of high school chemistry. Two credits in our state, Indiana. Some states do 1/2 credit per semester. In that case it would be one full credit.
My son just started Algebra1. Can he do this while he is learning Algebra1, or he should finish Algebra1 before he starts this book?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello, this book, in my experience, requires a thorough knowledge of Algebraic concepts.
I would recommend at least one completed year of Algebra before beginning this book.
My daughter had completed Algebra 1 & 2 and was in Geometry at the time of taking this course, and still she thought it was tough!
Hope this helps!
Does each student need his/her own lab kit for this course, or would it work for two students to share?

BEST ANSWER: Two students could share and do it as lab partners. My son finished the course and there are enough lab supplies for my daughter to do the labs on her own. I did buy extra beakers and larger test tubes in case of breakage or if he wanted to expand the experiments. He did use about half of the copper sulfate, but less than half of all the other chemicals. We purchased the simple burner(looks like the bottom half of an kerosene lamp) with the wire mesh stand.

He loved this book and the way it was laid out and how clearly concepts were taught.
Will you have these at the Masshope conference this month?
A shopper on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we will start the convention with a supply.
