THE CHEMISTRY TUTOR - LEARNING BY EXAMPLE

Accelerate Students Chemistry Skills
Improve student's problem-solving skills
Learn to solve problems step-by-step & line-by-line
Working example problems of increasing difficulty
Teaches how to read, extract information & set up each problem for solution


Conquer Chemistry with ease! Chemistry seems challenging to most students because there are a great deal of foreign definitions introduced early in the course. Many students feel uncomfortable solving chemistry problems because it takes practice for students to learn the skills needed to read, understand and tackle problems in a logical manner. Chemistry does not have to be a hard subject if students know how to break down the concepts into bit-sized chunks. The Chemistry Tutor provides students with practical, step-by-step instruction, valuable practice for a chemistry test, as a study aid for chemistry homework, or as a comprehensive chemistry review of essential concepts at the high school or university level.

The Chemistry Tutor is a complete 17 lesson series covering all of the core topics in detail.

Students Will Learn Everything From:
Units and Unit Conversions, Temperature, Density, Atomic Theory of Matter, Periodic Table, Molecular Compounds, Ions and Ionic Charge, Ionic Compounds, Hydrate Compounds

What sets this series apart from other teaching tools is that the concepts are taught entirely through step-by-step example problems of increasing difficulty. It works by introducing each new concept in an easy to understand way and by using example problems that are worked out step-by-step and line-by-line to completion. If a student has a problem with coursework or homework, simply find a similar problem fully worked on in the series and review the steps needed to solve the problem.

Students will be able to work problems with ease, improve their problem-solving skills and understand the underlying concepts of Chemistry.

This series is best used in order from Volume 1 through Volume 17

Atomic Theory of Matter: Part 1


This program covers part 1 of the very important topic of the atomic theory of matter. We discuss how atoms combine together to form new compounds. Students review the law of conservation of mass and how the mass of the substances at the beginning of a reaction must equal the mass of the products of the reaction. We conclude by discussing the law of multiple proportions and how this law can predict how new compounds will form in nature. The entire lesson is taught by working example problems beginning with the easier ones and gradually progressing to the harder problems.
