UPDATE: The winner that Random.org chose is Comment #146, Jane!
I actually have an early version of Friendly Chemistry, but would love an updated one. It is such a nonthreatening way to experience Chemistry. My 14 year old who struggles with school, but enjoys science is doing well and my 17 year old, who is a very bright young man with Aspergers who greatly dislikes science, is also doing well. We were all in stitches playing one of the games yesterday.
Friendly Chemistry has recently edited & updated their curriculum. To celebrate, they want to send a full curriculum set to one of you!
After looking through a Friendly Chemistry textbook, you’ll soon realize that, hmm, chemistry is a little more interesting than you first thought. Give it a longer look and you’ll find yourself surprisingly absorbed in elements and molecules. Then…gather some students, teach a Friendly Chemistry lesson and you’ll see that chemistry is not only fun, but the kids are asking to have another chemistry class!
The author, Joey Hajda, describes Friendly Chemistry like this:
“Friendly Chemistry was written using simple language and a host of analogies to make learning (and teaching!) chemistry easy. We believe that the chemistry concepts presented in Friendly Chemistry are NOT watered-down. The concepts are just explained in ways that are readily understood by most learners. Coupled with these explanations is a host of teaching aids, labs and games which makes the learning concrete and multi-sensory. Students find the course fun and painless. Parents often comment, ‘I wish I had had this when I was taking chemistry. Now it all makes so much sense!'”
Guess what? The publishers want to offer one of you a free set of Friendly Chemistry curriculum, which includes:
- Student text
- Teacher text (volumes 1 & 2)
- Manipulative text (a 74 page booklet to be disassembled by the end user)
Current retail cost is $49.99 for the student edition and $24.99 for each volume of the Teacher’s edition (Two volume set). The manipulative set retails for $9.99. Total retail value: $109.96
