Allotropes, isotopes, electrolysis, molarity, stoichiometry, thermodynamics! How often have you heard students remark that learning chemistry is like learning a new language? As our vocabulary increases, so too does our knowledge! Learning the language—the terminology of chemistry—is fundamental to understanding the principles and concepts of chemistry. Antoine Lavoisier hinted at this essential connection in an oft-quoted statement: “To call forth a concept, a word is needed.” Help students achieve greater chemical literacy and improve their conceptual understanding of chemistry with this book of interesting, fun crossword puzzles.
