My 7th grader did a chemistry class this year using Noeo Chemistry 3, which I think she mostly enjoyed. I think the biggest thing we had to work on in this class was how to write up a good lab report without cutting corners. I think the readings were solid and fairly interesting too.
The chemistry kit was fairly complete and came with some good resources. She found a few of the labs to be a bit trite and redundant. But a few of them sparked her interest. The last one was kinda cool. We happen to catch it on video. Her lesson was on chemo-luminescence. Did I spell that right?
