Touted as the most successful NSF-funded project published, Chemistry in the Community (ChemCom) by the American Chemical Society (ACS) offers a meaningful and memorable chemistry program for all levels of high school students. ChemCom covers traditional chemistry topics within the context of societal issues and real-world scenarios. Centered on decision-making activities where students are responsible for generating data in an investigating, analyzing that data and then applying their chemistry knowledge to solve the presented problem. The text is intensively laboratory-based, with all 39 of the investigations integrated within the text, not separate from the reading. With the ChemCom program, students learn more organic and biochemistry, more environmental and industrial chemistry, and more on the particulate nature of matter than other textbooks all within the relevance of solving problems that arise in everyday life. Meticulously updated to meet the needs of today's teachers and students, the new sixth edition of ChemCom adheres to the new science framework as well as the forthcoming next generation of science standards. Incorporating advances in learning and cognitive sciences, ChemCom’s wide-ranging coverage builds upon the concepts and principles found in the National Science Education Standards. Correlations are available showing how closely aligned ChemCom is to these and other state standards ChemCom Frequently Asked Questions The following link takes you to frequently asked questions about the high school chemistry textbook, Chemistry in the Community.

Chemistry in the Community (ChemCom) is a year-long high school chemistry course for college-bound students, structured around community issues related to chemistry. The course is about 50% laboratory-based, and features decision-making activities which give students practice in applying their chemistry knowledge in realistic decision-making situations. Concepts are presented on a "need-to-know" basis, allowing students to experience the use and application of their chemistry learning, leading to a greater sense of motivation and a feeling of ownership of their new knowledge. Because of the nature of the issues covered in the specific units, students learn more organic and biochemistry than in traditional courses, as well as some environmental and industrial chemistry.

Following in the tradition of the first seven editions, the goal of this successful, issues-based textbook, Chemistry in Context, is to establish chemical principles on a need-to-know basis for non-science majors, enabling them to learn chemistry in the context of their own lives and significant issues facing science and the world. The non-traditional approach of Chemistry in Context reflects today's technological issues and the chemistry principles within them. Global warming, alternate fuels, nutrition, and genetic engineering are examples of issues that are covered in Chemistry in Context.

This book focuses on developing and updating prospective and practicing chemistry teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge. The 11 chapters of the book discuss the most essential theories from general and science education, and in the second part of each of the chapters apply the theory to examples from the chemistry classroom. Key sentences, tasks for self-assessment, and suggestions for further reading are also included. The book is focused on many different issues a teacher of chemistry is concerned with. The chapters provide contemporary discussions of the chemistry curriculum, objectives and assessment, motivation, learning difficulties, linguistic issues, practical work, student active pedagogies, ICT, informal learning, continuous professional development, and teaching chemistry in developing environments. This book, with contributions from many of the world’s top experts in chemistry education, is a major publication offering something that has not previously been available. Within this single volume, chemistry teachers, teacher educators, and prospective teachers will find information and advice relating to key issues in teaching (such as the curriculum, assessment and so forth), but contextualised in terms of the specifics of teaching and learning of chemistry, and drawing upon the extensive research in the field. Moreover, the book is written in a scholarly style with extensive citations to the literature, thus providing an excellent starting point for teachers and research students undertaking scholarly studies in chemistry education; whilst, at the same time, offering insight and practical advice to support the planning of effective chemistry teaching. This book should be considered essential reading for those preparing for chemistry teaching, and will be an important addition to the libraries of all concerned with chemical education. Dr Keith S. Taber (University of Cambridge; Editor: Chemistry Education Research and Practice) The highly regarded collection of authors in this book fills a critical void by providing an essential resource for teachers of chemistry to enhance pedagogical content knowledge for teaching modern chemistry. Through clever orchestration of examples and theory, and with carefully framed guiding questions, the book equips teachers to act on the relevance of essential chemistry knowledge to navigate such challenges as context, motivation to learn, thinking, activity, language, assessment, and maintaining professional expertise. If you are a secondary or post-secondary teacher of chemistry, this book will quickly become a favorite well-thumbed resource! Professor Hannah Sevian (University of Massachusetts Boston)

With authors who are both accomplished researchers and educators, Vollhardt and Schore’s Organic Chemistry is proven effective for making contemporary organic chemistry accessible, introducing cutting-edge research in a fresh, student-friendly way. A wealth of unique study tools help students organize and understand the substantial information presented in this course. And in the sixth edition, the themes of understanding reactivity, mechanisms, and synthetic analysis to apply chemical concepts to realistic situations has been strengthened. New applications of organic chemistry in the life sciences, industrial practices, green chemistry, and environmental monitoring and clean-up are incorporated. This edition includes more than 100 new or substantially revised problems, including new problems on synthesis and green chemistry, and new “challenging” problems.

Written in the spirit of the reform movement that is reinvigorating the introductory majors course, Principles of Life cuts through the thicket of excessive detail and factual minutiae to focus on what matters most in the study of biology today. Students explore the most essential biological ideas and information in the context of the field’s defining experiments, and are actively engaged in analyzing research data. The result is a textbook that is hundreds of pages shorter (and significantly less expensive) than the current majors introductory books.
