Painless Chemistry
Yes, chemistry really can be painless, understandable, and fun! Chemistry 101, from the same great makers as our popular Biology 101, takes the essentials of chemistry and presents them in an enjoyable DVD format.

Four Areas of Study
Chemistry 101 is divided into four main sections: The Road to the Periodic Table, Chemistry Essentials, Meet the Elements, and The Future of Chemistry. By the end of Chemistry 101, you will understand what the Periodic Table means and how to balance chemical equations, and you will have an introductory knowledge of every element. You will also learn a plethora of scientific history, from Tubal-Cain to Robert Boyle, from alchemy to the discovery of sub-atomic particles.

Chemistry 101 for the Entire Family
Filled with visual explanations, humorous asides, and a handful of simple experiments that you can replicate, Chemistry 101 is a chemistry DVD your entire family will enjoy learning from.

Over Eleven Hours of Video
Contains 19 individual segments, each 20 to 45 minutes long, for a total running time of over 11 hours. Four DVDs; the fourth DVD includes a printable guidebook, quizzes in PDF format, and, for your high-school students, a Course Accreditation Program PDF.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2016 Tenth-Grade Curriculum Kit!

Guidebook with quizzes is included as a printable PDF on disc 4

    Timberdoodle: Chemistry 101 Review
    "...Well, to my surprise he not only sat there quietly, he actually processed what the instructor was teaching him. So this was a big plus in my book! Also, to my surprise, my middle son and my younger children all wanted to watch too! I could not believe it but my 4 year old knew some of the questions that I had asked my 14 year old! Ha!...In conclusion, I will say that I would recommend the Chemistry 101 DVDís to the age group of 10 and up..."

    We have done only the October 2, 2014
    Reviewer: Susan C.  
    We have done only the first 2 segments so far, but I have to say it was "love at first sight " for us! I got it for my grade 11 daughter who is doing it for a credit. But my grade 8 daughter is also doing it with us and loves it too!! I am learning so much myself also. His presentation is so engaging and very clear with understandable explanations, humerous bits, interesting labs, and a variety of settings to keep things lively. Even the background music is very appropriate. We highly recommend this chemistry course and wish I'd known about it sooner as my son would have enjoyed it more than what we struggled through with him! I'm hoping there is a biology DVD made by Wes Olson. I intend to check out any other courses he has put out. This is the first time science has ever been fun as well as very understandable for me! I hope it continues like this through the remainder of this course! And I love the printable workbook feature which makes it so user friendly for families. Thank you, Olson family!
