High School Chemistry was designed as a two-semester course for second- or third-year high school students. Chemistry topics include matter, the periodic table, chemical reactions, solution chemistry, organic chemistry, and nuclear chemistry. The course includes state-of-the-art animation and computer graphics to simplify concepts with visual explanations. Step-by-step instructions for solving quantitative chemistry and physics problems are provided throughout the course. High School science courses include strategies for dealing with common misconceptions, based on information gathered from Uncovering Student Ideas in Science by Page Keeley and Joyce Tugel, Project 2061, and the National Science Education Standards.
