    Accelerated Chemistryis an ideal text forstudents who love science and aspire to a STEM-oriented college program. This book contains up-to-date chemistry information, beautifulillustrations, and lucid narrative. It also supports Novare's, trademark mastery-learning paradigm.

    This accelerated text is a more intense treatment than ourPrinciples of Chemistrytext.This text includes additional chapters on thermochemistry, chemical equilibrium, and a glimpse into organic chemistry. Ample exercises are included in each chapter giving students plenty ofopportunity to develop skills.

    Explanations move along a little faster and go into a little more depth than the grade-level text. See the Table of Contents and Samples Pages by clicking the buttons above.

    Although the mathematics involved in chemistry are generally not advanced, Accelerated Chemistryis recommended for students who are concurrently enrolled in Algebra II due to the appearance of logarithm calculations when studying pH values.

    As with all Centripetal Press textbooks, our design philosophy guides the layout and composition of the text. Colors and images are attractive without being distracting. Our books are designed to be read and studied, and the presentation as well as the voice of the narrator supports that.

    Be sure to add theResource CD to your list to get access to quizzes and tests, and the associated answer keys. It also contains scheduling information and recommendations for conducting the course. Also, choose from our twoChemistry Experiments manuals for either school laboratory use or home-based contexts without access to standard lab fixtures.

    NOTE: It is recommended that students have a prior course in physics before using this book. It is assumed that important skills and concepts are already grasped before using this text. If you want to use this text but have not had the physics foundation, you can useThe Novare Chemistry Supplement to get you up to speed. It is a 25-page primer of fundamental learning that this texts takes for granted that students already know.
