Discovering Design with Chemistry is a high-school, college-prep chemistry course by Dr. Jay Wile. Designed for homeschooled students to use independently, this course features at-home experiments, a simple format, and thorough text that provides extensive coverage of chemistry from a Christian, creation-based perspective.

This course includes sixteen chapters that together cover topics such as the classification of matter, atomic structure, spectroscopy, chemical bonding, molecular geometry, physical change, chemical change, stoichiometry, solutions, ideal gases, acid/base chemistry, reduction/oxidation reactions, thermochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, and chemical equilibrium. Concepts are woven together with their mathematical applications to help students learn to think like chemists.

In the Discovering Design with Chemistry textbook, each of the sixteen chapters contains the main text with important information and definitions to be memorized highlighted. "Comprehension Check" questions and examples are included throughout, and each chapter ends with a review, which is to be completed before taking the chapter test (included in the test book). Each chapter has at least one experiment; forty-six experiments are included in total, and students will average three experiments every two weeks.

Access to a course website is included with this kit; this website includes videos that show how to work the kinds of problems found in the chapter, videos of experiments that illustrate topics but might be too difficult to actually conduct at home, and more detailed discussions of various topics.

The Answer Key & Tests Book includes answers to the chapter reviews in the student text, chapter tests & test answers, and two semester final exams and answers. The answers to the comprehension check questions are in the student text.

This course can be completed in one year at the pace of one chapter every two weeks, working approximately 45 minutes-1 hour per day. For those who'd like a more structured approach, an optional 36-week schedule with weekly assignment checkboxes is provided.

Prerequisite: Algebra 1. Grades 9-12.

Note that the Lab Kitfor this course is available separately (created by Nature's Workshop Plus) for convenience; see the Lab Supply List PDF for a full listing of all the materials needed by experiment. Twenty-seven experiments can be completed without the kit supplies.

This kit includes:

  • Discovering Design with Chemistry Textbook, 557 pages, hardcover with index and glossary and access to course website; non-consumable text.
  • Answer Key and Tests Book, 224 pages, softcover.

    Science in the Beginning is an engaging, exciting, hands-on, multilevel elementary resource that is the first in a planned series of books by Dr. Jay Wile.

    Introducing scientific concepts in the context of history, the days of creation are used as a structure through which a wide variety of scientific topics are introduced, including: light, energy conservation, air & water, botany, the solar system, zoology, and some aspects of human anatomy and physiology.

    A total of 90 lessons are included; 15 for every creative day in the Genesis account. The first 12 are "normal" lessons and the last 3 are challenge lessons. Depending on how much science you wish to teach in your homeschool, there are enough lessons to cover every other day for the length of a school year, or, you can finish the book by only doing two lessons a week (and skipping the challenge lessons).

    Students will love the hands-on activity that begins each lesson. Most are experiments (that have been field-tested for homeschoolers!), and include step by step directions to keep you on track. As this curriculum was designed for all elementary-aged students to use together, the main lesson text takes a conversational, easy-to-read tone that all students can comprehend; illustrations and photographs are integrated throughout. A review assignment closes the lesson; questions are grouped for "youngest, older, and oldest" students. Students are to keep a notebook, and activities include both drawing and writing type notebook assignments. For evaluation, the notebook or oral questions can be used; tests are not in the text, but are in the helps and hints book.

    Experiments use common household goods, though for some items that may not be on-hand, a list is provided at the beginning of the book. A full materials list for each creation-day chapter is also included for easy preparation.

    The "Helps & Hints" book accompanies the primary text. Divided into three sections, this book will provide helpful notes on the lesson and experiments in the textbook, tests for each "day" of the creation week, and answers to the tests.

    This curriculum is designed for elementary students in grades K-6.

    This kit includes:

    • Science in the Beginning Text, 299 pages with glossary and index. Hardcover.
    • Science in the Beginning Helps & Hints Book, 48 pages, softcover.
