Painless Chemistry
Yes, chemistry really can be painless, understandable, and fun! Chemistry 101, from the same great makers as our popular Biology 101, takes the essentials of chemistry and presents them in an enjoyable DVD format.

Four Areas of Study
Chemistry 101 is divided into four main sections: The Road to the Periodic Table, Chemistry Essentials, Meet the Elements, and The Future of Chemistry. By the end of Chemistry 101, you will understand what the Periodic Table means and how to balance chemical equations, and you will have an introductory knowledge of every element. You will also learn a plethora of scientific history, from Tubal-Cain to Robert Boyle, from alchemy to the discovery of sub-atomic particles.

Chemistry 101 for the Entire Family
Filled with visual explanations, humorous asides, and a handful of simple experiments that you can replicate, Chemistry 101 is a chemistry DVD your entire family will enjoy learning from.

Over Eleven Hours of Video
Contains 19 individual segments, each 20 to 45 minutes long, for a total running time of over 11 hours. Four DVDs; the fourth DVD includes a printable guidebook, quizzes in PDF format, and, for your high-school students, a Course Accreditation Program PDF.

  • Guidebook with quizzes is included as a printable PDF on Disc D.
  • 12-page Course Accreditation Program booklet is included in a printable PDF format

    review by Family, Faith, and Fridays

    ”Honestly, I wasn't sure how I would feel about this course as I am a textbook kind of gal, but I knew we were desperate and needed a change. I wish I had not waited as long as I did to introduce this program into to our school, and look forward to using it again with our last child.”

    Easy to understand

    This curriculum is easy to understand and follow. I love the activities and labs that go along with the lessons. This is an excellent way to learn Chemistry without the difficult math.

    This was a nice approach to science and having a dvd lesson and worksheets you can print at home.

    Great Christian Worldview

    I bought this DVD to accompany the PAC curriculum for my 15 year old son. We do the PAC Mon-Wed and this DVD on Thur. It's a great change up after the bookwork the first part of the week. When they are turned on the whole family ends up watching them. These are interesting, engaging and teach a solid Christian Worldview which is a nice addition to our Science giving my son a well rounded education. I highly recommend these and will be using them with my younger sons.

    Chemistry 101

    I am pretty interested in chemistry. This is very interesting, the videos are good. I think they did a really good job making the CDs. Most chemistry books and videos are kind of hard to understand. This one is easier. It makes me want to be a chemist when I grow up.

    Very Fun and Interesting

    I have a unique 8 year old child who is obsessed with elements and the periodic table. He has read every book on chemistry and elements in the children's section of the library. He picked this out for himself and has loved it. He watched it in his free time. He woke up early to watch it instead of cartoons, and watched it all day Saturday. He animatedly told us about his favorite parts. He is currently watching the videos for a second time. I just found out that there are a series of quizzes on the cd that you can print out. He is excited to start over and take a quiz after each lesson.
