Chemistry

There are a growing number of Chemistry courses designed for Christian and home schools. We're working on comparing and reviewing many of them, including: Apologia, Berean Builders, A Beka, Bob Jones, Singapore, Novare, Real Science-4-Kids, Life of Fred, Chemistry 101, and more. Check back soon for overviews and comparison!

Chemistry is the science concerned with the composition, structure, and properties of matter, as well as the changes it undergoes during chemical reactions. Modern chemistry evolved out of alchemy following the chemical revolution (1773). It is a physical science related to studies of various atoms, molecules, crystals and other aggregates of matter whether in isolation or combination, which incorporates the concepts of energy and entropy in relation to the spontaneity of chemical processes.

Disciplines within chemistry are traditionally grouped by the type of matter being studied:

  • Inorganic chemistry, the study of inorganic matter
  • Organic chemistry, the study of organic matter
  • Biochemistry, the study of substances found in biological organisms
  • Physical chemistry, the energy related studies of chemical systems at macro, molecular and submolecular scales
  • Analytical chemistry, the analysis of material samples to gain an understanding of their chemical composition and structure.

Many more specialized disciplines have emerged in recent years, e.g. neurochemistry the chemical study of the nervous system.
