A video instructional series for college and high school classrooms and adult learners; 26 half-hour video programs and coordinated books
Join with experts to observe chemistry in action and learn the laws and principles of this dynamic field. Computer technology and special effects place students in a front-row seat to observe many processes, even those that are too dangerous or impractical to experience directly. Working industrial and research chemists of all backgrounds serve as role models. The World of Chemistry
is appropriate for students taking high school or college chemistry, from introductory to advanced levels, and is easily applicable to different teaching approaches. It includes physics and Earth science components, and is also valuable for teachers seeking to review the subject matter.
This series supports nationally recognized science standards NSTA and NCSESA.
Produced by the University of Maryland and the Educational Film Center. 1990.
