Chemistry is the study of the composition, structure, and properties of matter. It is through an understanding of chemistry that the products that have benefited society were discovered, and technologies to sustain the environment were put in place. Knowledge of how matter changes will give us an insight into the origin of life, so we can realize that life could only have been formed by a supernatural act of creation, not by a process of change over time.

-High school science course with lab curriculum
-Lab experiments are included with guidance on where to order the lab equipment and supplies needed for the course
-Based on the principle that those who can understand and apply information do much better than those who simply memorize material

This course has been taught by Dr. Englin for several years, with students going on to medical and graduate school. He wanted to develop a series of courses that would give students the tools to help them succeed in higher education. The comprehensive material has God the Creator as its foundation.

Chemistry: Teacher's Guide

This book was created to help teachers as they instruct students through the Masters Class Chemistry course by Master Books. The teacher is one who guides students through the subject matter, helps each student stay on schedule and be organized, and is their source of accountability along the way. With that in mind, this guide provides additional help through the laboratory exercises, as well as lessons, quizzes, and examinations that are provided along with the answers.

The lessons in this study emphasize working through procedures and problem solving by learning patterns. The vocabulary is kept at the essential level. Practice exercises are given with their answers so that the patterns can be used in problem solving. These lessons and laboratory exercises are the result of over 30 years of teaching home school high school students and then working with them as they proceed through college. Guided labs are provided to enhance instruction of weekly lessons.

There are many principles and truths given to us in Scripture by the God that created the universe and all of the laws by which it functions. It is important to see the hand of God and His principles and wisdom as it plays out in chemistry. This course integrates what God has told us in the context of this study.

Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has five easy-to-manage lessons that combine reading and worksheets. Worksheets, quizzes, and tests are perforated and three-hole punched materials are easy to tear out, hand out, grade, and store. Adjust the schedule and materials needed to best work within your educational program. Space is given for assignments dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. Adapt the days to your school schedule.

Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each section of the teacher guide. They should be encouraged to complete as many of the activities and projects as possible as well. Tests are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade.
