ChemCom: Chemistry in the Community
Chemistry in the Community is a first-year high school chemistry textbook that covers concepts in the context of societal issues. Seven study units emphasize organic chemistry, biochemistry, environmental chemistry, and industrial chemistry. Students learn concepts on a need-to-know basis, evaluate data, and make decisions based on their knowledge and observations. The lab-based course features activities that give students practice in applying their knowledge of chemistry. Supported during its development by the National Science Foundation, one link is to the publishers website and another is to the website of the American Chemical Society.
