Welcome to Conceptual Chemistry Alive!
Conceptual Chemistry Alive! is the author-created companion website to Conceptual Chemistry, a textbook that focuses on the basic concepts of chemistry and how these concepts apply to our daily experiences.
Conceptual Chemistry Alive! features over 200 video lesson tutorials given by the author, John Suchocki. These video lessons are a "talking textbook." They are an excellent resource for students who, in addition to reading the textbook, need to see and hear the concepts in action. Each video lesson averages only 7 minutes in length. For some videos, it may seem the author moves through the curriculum rather slowly. For others, you may be compelled to hit the rewind button repeatedly. Please skip and meander through these videos as you see fit so as to optimize your learning.

Supporters of this website also have access to additional resources including: high resolution videos (organized by textbook section numbers); answers to the >600 video check questions; worksheets, called Practice Pages, which guide you through some of the tougher concepts; online practice quizzes; and the ever-popular detailed chapter summaries (written by the author).
The Conceptual Chemistry curriculum is becoming increasingly popular with home schools seeking college-prep chemistry. For this reason, we have developed a home school area of this website dedicated to answering questions or concerns regarding the use of Conceptual Chemistry within a home school environment.
