Apologia: Advanced Chemistry in Creation Student Book, 2nd Edition
Hardback, ISBN: 9781935495239
An excellent way to dig deeper into Chemisty, and/or be prepare to take an AP or CLEP exam! This course is to be used after the student has completed Algebra 2 and a college prep Chemistry course (such as Exploring Creation with Chemistry or Descovering Design with Chemistry).
Topics that are covered in this course include: stoichiometry, thermodynamics, kinetics, acids and bases, redox reactions, solutions, atomic structure, orbital hybridization, molecular orbitals, molecular geometry, chemical equilibrium, and nuclear chemistry. As well as an introduction to organic chemistry.
28 hours of lab exercises are included. Labs that are included are, among others: the rate of an iodine clock reaction, distillation, chromatography, the common ion effect, measuring pH changes in a buffer, the electrolysis of copper sulfate, polymerization experiments, and the hydrolysis of sucrose.
I (Teresa) would highly encourage you to also purchase the Solutions and Tests book that has blank tests, as well as all of the answers to the Tests, Chapter Summaries, and end of chapter Study Guides. Also available, but only needed if you don't want to photocopies the blank tests out of the Tests and Worksheets book, is a booklet of blank tests (enough for 1 student).
