The third in this popular series, with the same format (including questions that teachers can use for checking comprehension) that has driven the success of Exploring Planet Earth and Exploring the History of Medicine. 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.
