With RSO Chemistry, students observe, speculate, hypothesize, experiment, and conclude through the topics of atoms and molecules, the periodic table, states of matter, acids and bases, and chemical reactions. Students learn by doing through engaging written lessons that are heavily reinforced by hands-on labs and activities.
Wow! I wish I had your chemistry textbook when I was in 5th grade, or any time before taking chem in college. I can remember being confused and working very hard in both lab and lecture. I was one of those students to whom you were referring; I did not have a strong foundation in chemistry prior to higher level courses. That being said, I am so happy to have finally found a chemistry curriculum that makes sense, and that is suited for young students! Most of all, I appreciate your respect for young minds. Kids don’t usually have a framework for this type of complex material, and all to often, textbook authors assume that the random information in their books should easily be understood without even making any REAL connections. Thank you for your dedication to making a superior, thoughtful textbook! I can hardly wait for your Bio- level two book for my daughter who is in seventh grade. – Bron, Homeschool mom in California
