Chemistry Help includes thirty-six short instructional chemistry videos (between 5 and 15 minutes in length), printable worksheets, printable answer keys, and video explanations of the answer keys. It is designed to help expand on topics typically studied in high school chemistry such as scientific notation, mass and weight, conversions, significant digits, covalent compounds, ions, polyatomic ions, ionic compounds, energy, states of matter, specific heat, and latent heat. It is not designed to serve as a stand-alone class but rather an in-depth tutorial for extra help and practice in key areas of chemistry.
