Target audience

Covers all the traditional and modern topics in General Chemistry in undergraduate science programs.

We encourage sales to Universities, Institutions and Home Groups by providing Volume Discounts (found at step 2 above). These provide even greater savings over our already low prices, compared to hard copy textbooks.
Users: teachers

Use the power of interactive multimedia to motivate your students and provide them with a clearer understanding of ideas that were once more difficult to explain.

Promote the idea of more frequent individual study among your students and encourage them to explore various concepts and topics at their own pace.
The many 3-D animations facilitate the explanation of complex ideas and provides students with helpful visual representations.
Non-linear structure of the tutorial allows you the option of easily skipping to desired sections.
Give your students access to multimedia learning tools that can help your online course environments go beyond simply posting comments and communicating with others.
Accompany in-class lectures with a display of both graphics and text by using a conventional overhead projector. This can be easier and more effective than writing notes on a blackboard.
MCH tutorials contain many good ideas for possible exam questions
