See our honest review of Memoria Press Science.

This book is the third of the science books in the popular "Exploring" series and includes questions that teachers can use for checking comprehension. Home and Christian school teachers are clamoring for these more specialized books and here Tiner delivers in a big way.

With a flair for telling biographical sketches of famous scientists, Tiner also provides students with a solid foundation for understanding the crucial purposes of chemistry.

Each chapter ends with study questions and the answers, in the back of the book, can easily be removed by teacher or parent.

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 televisions, no microwave ovens, or something as simple as wax paper.

This book presents an exciting and intriguing tour through the realm of chemistry as each chapter unfolds with facts and stories about the discoveries and discoverers. Find out why pure gold is not used for jewelry or coins. Join Humphry Davy as he made many chemical discoveries, and learn how they shortened his life. See how people in the 1870s could jump over the top of the Washington Monument.

Exploring the World of Chemistry brings science to life and is a wonderful learning tool with many illustrations, biographical information, chapter tests, and an index for easy referencing.

  A Good Book on A Unpleasant Subject

Even though I really, really, really, don't like chemistry the author did a good job making this book endurable. The text was clearly and simply written, terms were defined, and it was easy to understand. I like how he doesn't just talk about the science but also the scientists, their lives and beliefs. I also appreciate that this book is written from a Christian view point. I also like the tests at the end of each chapter. They are really good if you want to remember what you read about.
