Principles of Alchemy (Chemistry).zip (1.6mb)
This is a self-paced, self-learning text specifically designed to teach Chemistry on your computer, created by Dr. Jamie Love. Its chemistry lessons are specifically designed with the needs of home school students in mind. It is not a series of “simulation” programs that provide only a brief explanation of the science, nor does it abandon the student with a dry science book. The text has has evolved into a complete self-learning Chemistry course, tried and tested by students of a variety of ages and backgrounds and is divided into four sections, each with a computer graded exam. After completing all four sections the student takes the final exam and, once successfully completed, will receive a Diploma. In total there are 5 exams with 100 questions. Each chapter (called an “Ancient Element”) contains lessons presented in dialogue style. The purpose of this style is to break away from the dry textbooks that seem to have become a standard for Science education. Problem solving is easily demonstrated and common errors in thinking are identified. A dialogue unfolds in which Chemistry is learned. To start, unzip the zip file into a new folder double-click or click on with the “alchemy1.htm” or “START HERE – Click to open in browser.htm” file.
