From Our Homeschooling Family to Yours
Chemistry 101 was developed and hosted by Wes Olson, Multnomah School of the Bible graduate (now Multnomah University), veteran filmmaker of 20 years, homeschooling father and producer of Biology 101. Wes guides you through the science of chemistry; untangling and decoding complex terms and ideas into an organized easy to use format. This DVD course will give your children a thorough overview of the world of chemistry.
Your Complete High School Level Chemistry Course?
It depends—homeschooling families’ approaches to teaching and learning are far from cookie-cutter in design. For some families, this set of DVDs— which are very comprehensive in scope—will be enough to provide a thorough grounding in Chemistry.
Other families may prefer to use these DVDs as a starting point, one that provides their children with the correct foundation; an exciting eye and mind-opening overview of biology, before beginning textbook study. A 23-page Course Accreditation Program booklet is included in a printable (digital PDF) format, for those who want the DVDs to form the foundation of a full school year's Chemistry course. In either case, students will find the series captivating and unusually informative. In fact, the entire family might enjoy watching each segment together and engaging in lively discussions about the material.
