How to Survive Chemistry - Genius Games

Single Atom

After studying chemistry in-depth in college, getting a masters degree in environmental and chemical engineering, then teaching chemistry for a couple years, I have come to the conclusion that the topic of chemistry is often over-complicated with complex formulas and equations while the instruction of the subject has become unattached from reality and rather uninteresting.

I think this gives students a bad taste and creates an aversion to the subject in the public eye.

My hope is to write simple, bite-size lessons that use real-world examples and can be read in just a couple minutes. Whether you’re studying the topic in school or you’re simply curious about chemistry, you can read one or more posts in just a couple minutes each day in order to gain a practical grasp of the fundamental concepts which govern how our world functions!
