Chemistry: Concepts and Applications © 2005
Chemistry: Concepts and Applications is a conceptual approach to the presentation of chemistry. It has a clear and comprehensive narrative of chemistry concepts with just the right amount of math. Two of many in-text lab options include Launch Labs and Try at Home Labs, the latter of which are unique to Glencoe. The program's media/technology support diverse classroom instruction.
About the Program
Using Chemistry: Concepts and Applications, you can:
- Provide clear chemistry application of key concepts with inquiry-based Launch Labs, safe and “doable” MiniLabs, and classroom-proven ChemLabs. Additional resource options are available for forensics, small-scale and probeware labs.
- Engage your students with exciting, colorful introductions to the chapter content, including a Launch Lab, previews like What I Already Know and Reading Chemistry, and a link to Chemistry Online.
- Help students prepare for local, state, and national tests with Standardized Test Practice and Test-Taking Tips in the chapter assessment.
- Offer a variety of review and practice opportunities with Example Problems, Practice Problems, and Supplemental Practice Problems.
- Provide your students with the side-by-side English/Spanish Glossary (Glossary/Glosario)—a unique learning tool for ELL students.

Additional Details & Resources
- Research Base for Chemistry and Physics
This article shows how Glencoe's Physics program was designed from the National Science Education Standards, which include the following four tenants: Science is for all students; Learning science is an active process; School science reflects the intellectual and cultural traditions that characterize the practice of contemporary science; and, Improving science education is part of systemic education reform. References of the research base can be viewed at the end of the document.
Randomized Controlled Studies
- Efficacy Study of Glencoe Chemistry and Physics
This report describes 13 schools in seven districts that have been successful in teaching chemistry and physics concepts, as evidenced by student performance and attitude, feedback from students and parents, and responses from teachers. These results demonstrate the benefits of effective chemistry and physics curricula programs, as well as successful teaching practices.
