Chemistry is an amazing branch of science that affects us every day, yet few people realize it, or even give it much thought. Without chemistry, there would be nothing made of plastic, there would be no rubber tires, no tin cans, no television, no microwave ovens, or something as simple as wax paper.

Nice Intro to Chemistry
Review by
We used this book as part of the Survey of Science History & Concepts course, but I’d also recommend it to students who are interested in Chemistry or as a nice reference book to have on hand to supplement other science courses.
Trusted Reference

I purchased this in an electronic format. With so much content on the internet to be concerned with, this resource provides a digital reference for my daughter that I can trust, that honors God. Thank You MasterBooks!!!
Great even for elementary age
Review by
My son is very interested in chemistry right now, and I am going to give him this book to read, even though he is only 8. The concepts are explained really well, and I think he will be able to learn a lot. Wish it was in color.
Great for class and reference!

We love all of Tiner's books and have purchased all of them. Our kids are still young, but we use these books as read alouds and for research. They are such an engaging read and packed with great information. I plan to use them with Master Book's Survey of Science History & Concepts when my children are ready for that course.
Fascinating

The books from this series are so fascinating! Kids love them and adults too! Love to leave them around the house and kids pick them up and enjoy learning without knowing it!!!

My 15 year old son is reading this book right now. He likes the conversational style of the text and the historical background that is provided in each chapter.
An Awesome, Engaging, Introduction to Chemistry
Review by
I am excited to use this book with my son for his 5th grade chemistry. I ordered it ahead to look it over for myself. I am grateful for the selection of books that Master Books carries!
Great addition to intro to chem course
Review by
I am using this for my 5th grader as we tackle introductory chemistry (elementary using God's Design Series). I will use it as history addition to the concepts we will learn. I personally love chemistry and feel that learning the history behind how the elements were discovered and concepts created, can bring a dry subject to life! I am also teaching a chemistry course to HS students in co-op and hope to bring in some history from this as well. Would be difficult for my 5th grader to read independently (not that he cannot read at this level, but discussion of concepts is best when this is read aloud at that age)
