Holt Modern Chemistry
Holt Modern Chemistry is a comprehensive curriculum that emphasizes the fundamentals of chemistry and problem solving, while covering traditional chemistry topics as well as newly emerging topics. It presents a balanced approach to conceptual and problem-solving instruction.
The content is organized around main ideas. Strategic vocabulary is highlighted, critical thinking questions and reading questions are included to test student comprehension. Additionally, key formulas are highlighted to help students focus on the key parts of the formula. The unknown variables in the sample problems are highlighted and color coded throughout the book helping students focus on the problem solving process as they solve the practice problems.
Here are five good reasons to consider adopting Holt Modern Chemistry for your classroom:
- Accessible student textbook facilitates both conceptual and analytical skill development
- New differentiated instruction tools reach a wider range of student abilities and learning styles
- Superior problem-solving support to help students master the fundamentals of chemistry problem solving
- Highly effective technology tools to engage, motivate, and connect to today's students
- Virtual, stem, open-ended labs and others offer the variety of labs needed to meet your classroom needs
The newly designed Teacher's Edition presents a balanced approach to conceptual and problem-solving instruction with a new Instructional Model that is organized to help teachers focus and motivate their students, plan and prepare for class, teach, assess and re-teach.
The Teacher's Edition includes additional problem-solving support strategies to help students better understand chemistry problems and new differentiated instruction materials to assist with a wide range of student needs. These materials and other resources are also provided to help you reach the Below Level, English Learners, Pre-AP, and Inclusion students.
The Sample Problems in Modern Chemistry have been redesigned to help students easily follow the problem-solving steps with color coded variables in each sample problem allowing students to focus on the problem solving and process. Multiple sample problems in each chapter help to reinforce a consistent 4-step problem-solving process which helps students clearly see each step of a similar problem that they will practice on their own. Students learn to Analyze, Plan, and Solve problems and Check Their Work.
New differentiated instruction strategies have been added to assist teachers with a wide range of student needs including Below Level, English Learners, Pre-AP, and Inclusion students.
Make it relevant! Engage students with the Why It Matters features and corresponding "Why It Matters Video" Why It Matters videos that show chemistry in action and demonstrate the impact it has on everything they do in life.
