Living by Chemsitry
Designed to encourage all students to learn real chemistry, Living By Chemistry is a full-year high school curriculum that meets state and national standards. It is aligned to the Benchmarks for Scientific Literacy, the National Science Educational Standards, and the National Physical Science Standards. It is the product of a decade of research and development in high school classrooms. Field-testing showed that students perform better with Living By Chemistry. The curriculum is inquiry-based, seeking to promote critical-thinking skills and a greater understanding of the concepts. The curriculum is organized around six themed units that focus on the big ideas of chemistry and frame core concepts within everyday, real-world contexts. The first website links to the publisher's page for the material while the second website links to the Principal Investigator's research page.
