Why learn chemistry? Chemistry is everywhere! (ACS)

Avoiding the pitfalls of learning chemistry

How to easily learn the language of chemistry.

Does it seem odd to use math in science? Read this story that could make math more meaningful to you.

The Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education has adopted revised science standards. They are based on the Next Generation Science Standards, which itself is based on A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas (2012), from the National Research Council of the National Academies.

College Board Standards for College Success: Science

High school students are expected to have learned certain math skills by the end of grade 8; they will use these math skills in this course. Additional math skills are introduced throughout the year.
