Focus On High School Chemistry introduces high-school students to the fundamental terms and concepts found in college-level chemistry.
Topics include: atomic and molecular bonding, orbitals, hybrid orbitals, chemical reactions, balancing chemical equations; acid-base chemistry; mixtures and separating mixtures; carbon chemistry; polymer reactions; protein primary, secondary, and tertiary structure; DNA structure; and much more.
A glossary and pronunciation guide is included at the back of the book along with several appendices that go into more detail than covered in the main text.
The Focus On High School Chemistry Student Textbook goes into more depth than a regular high school text but does not cover every topic.
This is a one-semester text and can count as half of a high school credit.
