Our recommendation:

Components of Chemistry Matters:

The Textbook can be used in a school or home setting for 9th or 10th grade students. It can be read independently; although there are numerous questions given in the margin for discussion. Students should have a basic understanding of algebra and how to work with formulas and measurement units.  The focus is on inorganic chemistry, but there are a few chapters on organic chemistry. There is a review at the end of each chapter, and though many of the problems can be answered without doing any of the experiments in the practical book some of them are better understood if the student has some laboratory experience. There are clear links to the practical book and workbook,

The Practical Book is meant for a school setting. The experiments require laboratory apparatus and chemicals and are generally not feasible in a home setting due to cost and safety. The Practical is a separate course and does not follow the textbook lesson by lesson but rather complements the textbook. There are no instructions on how to prepare reagents and handle chemicals.

The Teacher’s Edition of the Practical Book is a copy of the Practical student’s edition with answers printed on the pages.

The Workbook can be easily used in a school or home setting.  There is one worksheet for most chapters, but not for all chapters, and one “Trial Exam”. The worksheets are structured like the exams in Singapore and include a multiple-choice section, a structured answer section, and a free response section. Some of the problems will be easier to answer if students have some laboratory experience, even if not the experiments specifically in the Practical Book.

The Teacher’s Edition of the Workbook is a copy of the Workbook student’s edition with answers printed on the pages.

The Teacher’s Planning Guide is a good resource with scheme of work, detailed lesson plans, links to internet sites, and additional activities. The guide also contains full solutions to the textbook questions. (Please note that The Solutions to Textbook Questions provides full solutions to textbook questions). Homeschoolers could probably find a variety of web sites themselves.

The Solutions to Textbook Questions provides solutions to textbook questions only. (The same solutions are in the Teacher's Planning Guide).
