Kendall Hunt Chemistry introduces core
concepts within 12 real-life chapter themes. The chemistry needed to understand
the theme is introduced within each chapter so that students see the relevance
and cross-concept connections of chemistry in their daily life.
Engaging Yet Rigorous Designed to engage all students, this
standards-based course provides an application-based approach that is
college-preparatory in its rigor.
Learning Like Scientists
Using the “need-to-know” approach used by real scientists, students
learn the science at the point they need to understand a problem. Concepts are
introduced at a place where they fit the theme and not “forced” into a spot
where they don’t belong.

Varying Lab Methods This text exposes
students to varying lab methods, from “cookbook” techniques to guided inquiry
and inquiry labs. Inquiry within labs takes on a guided approach initially and
works toward students having more responsibility for their lab experience in
the spirit of true inquiry.
