Chem Pro: Chemistry Tutor for iPad on the iTunes App Store.
I don’t frequently post about apps for high school students because I don’t have one in the house, but I came across this deal today. Chem Pro is a very interesting highly rated app for students studying chemistry. This app was developed by a research scientist/chemistry tutor in NYC to specifically assist students in preparing for AP Chemistry or General Chemistry. He has spent years tutoring NYC students in for classes and examinations in AP, general, organic, and physical chemistry.
I remember that chemistry out of all the sciences was the most challenging because of the sheer amount of information that must be memorized. This $2.99 app is free for a limited time for you to try out. This app comes with 10 video lessons, equation reference, some flashcards, and shows you what the molecular mass calculator and unit converter calculator looks like. Normally, I don’t suggest looking at apps that promote in-app purchases because that just plain annoys me.
However, in this case, this app might be worth your while to check out. Try it out and see if the 10 video lessons appeal to you before you buy the entire 80 lesson pack for $9.99. At minimum, I think the flashcards and the calculators at $0.99 each is a reasonable price. Your student should know how to do these calculations, but this is a very useful tool once that skill is mastered or for double-checking their work.
Recommended for high school chemistry students in traditional or homeschool settings.
