Chemistry is the study of the composition, structure, and properties of matter. It is through an understanding of chemistry that the products that have benefited society were discovered, and technologies to sustain the environment were put in place. Knowledge of how matter changes will give us an insight into the origin of life, so we can realize that life could only have been formed by a supernatural act of creation, not by a process of change over time.

  • High school science course with lab curriculum
  • Lab experiments are included with guidance on where to order the lab equipment and supplies needed for the course
  • Based on the principle that those who can understand and apply information do much better than those who simply memorize material

This course has been taught by Dr. Englin for several years, with students going on to medical and graduate school. He wanted to develop a series of courses that would give students the tools to help them succeed in higher education. The comprehensive material has God the Creator as its foundation. Algebra I is a recommended prerequisite for this Chemistry course.

This is a one-year course with two full semesters, helping the student fulfill one credit of chemistry, which includes the lab. High school transcripts will list the course as Chemistry with Labs.

Optional Resources Include: Video Based Instruction


The author makes studying chemistry seem more practical by his references to chemicals in everyday life and powerfully reminds students that the order revealed comes from our Creator God.

E. Howard Callahan, Chemical Engineer (Co-op) from Georgia Institute of Technology, M.Div. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

Excellent Chemistry Curriculum!
Review by SarahT
This text has short lessons that aid students understanding of the topics! This is high-quality chemistry education grounded in a biblical perspective with lots of hands-on opportunities for learning. I would highly recommend using this curriculum along side the Master Books Academy Chemistry class!
Great curriculum!
Review by Crystal
The Chemistry student text is very approachable for the student. The lessons are brief and there are lots of pictures and examples included. I like how the course tries to engage students with different learning styles. Each lesson lasts one week and includes reading from the text, completing a worksheet, learning the vocabulary, completing a lab, and completing a lab report. Through various learning activities, the understanding of the concepts are reinforced and tested. MB has developed a great 5 day schedule of activities, but there are opportunities to do the work in 3 or 4 days per week, making this curriculum flexible for busy families.

The teacher guide is a necessary and helpful companion to the Chemistry course. It includes all the worksheets, quizzes, tests, lab worksheets, and answer keys. In addition, there are helpful hints, instructions on how to use and grade the course, and the suggested daily guide. I enjoy how simply MB lays everything out for both the student and the parent.
Love it so far!
Review by Lexie
We decided to use this Masterbooks course for our daughter's chemistry high school credit. The course is divided up so that you cover one chapter per week and do an experiment along with it. It was somewhat surprising to see that the quizzes are suggested for day 3 of a 5 day week with the experiments following on days 4-5, but we are giving it a try. The chapters aren't too long or overwhelming so I believe we will stick with the schedule long term. The lessons are somewhat shorter so my daughter is doing well with them, whereas a long, drawn out chapter would easily bring on frustration for her. The teachers guide contains worksheets, lab reports, quizzes, tests, and answers to all of those. I love this concept about Masterbooks as not having an additional answer key to spend money on is greatly appreciated. The textbook itself is very colorful and inviting, drawing the reader in with wonderful pictures and presenting information from a very Christ centered perspective. The text and information presented is very upper level so I highly suggest using this during a junior or senior year in high school.
Great Chemistry Course
Review by Lacee C
Dr. Englin’s Master Class Chemistry is 28 chapters taking the student though the composition, structure, and properties of matter. I love that each science curriculum by Master Books works to not only point the student to our Creator, but also to apply concepts to real life. Students will will do worksheets, lab work, quizzes and exams throughout the course, found in the Teacher’s Guide. Algebra I is a prerequisite so this course is better suited to 10th grade and above. Master Books sells a Chemistry kit to go alongside this curriculum and it is needed to do the experiments. You could piece it together on your own, but ultimately it would cost you more unless you already have a significant amount of the supplies. You will definitely want all three components: the student text book, the teacher guide and the lab kit. Each chapter has a lab, done on day four of the week. Every three or four chapters there is a review week before an exam; exams are helpful because Chemistry is a course where concepts continue to build upon each other. While this is definitely a high school level course, I appreciate how easy the text is to follow and understand.
Excellent course!
Review by Becky V.
The Master’s Class Chemistry Set is an excellent introductory science course for your upper high-school student (10th-12th grade). It is a one-year course that will earn your student 1 credit with labs. Time investment is about five hours per week. A pre-requisite of Algebra 1 is required. A Chemistry Supply Kit can be purchased through Master Books. At first glance of this course, I am so excited to go through this course with each of my kids as they experience learning Chemistry with a strong Christian worldview.

The student text is well laid out with a balance of text and colorful graphics. Each chapter lists the objectives for the lesson that are to be learned, along with new vocabulary.

If you follow the suggested schedule in the teacher guide, the reading is typically done on day 1 with the worksheet to be completed, a review on day 2 focuses on vocabulary, a quiz on day 3, followed by the lab done over days 4-5. It is very manageable for the student.

The teacher guide for this Chemistry course is a must. It contains a suggested daily schedule to complete the course in a year, a grading sheet for the year, and teacher instructions for the course. It also includes all of the worksheets and laboratory reports to go along with the student text as well as all quizzes and exams to be taken.

I appreciate the variety in the worksheets - some are matching, short answer, with the majority of the work done during the lab portion. The teacher guide lays everything out for you to easily guide your student through this course.

Most important of all though, the emphasis is placed in this study of Chemistry on God’s unchanging character and His absolute control of His creation.
Great Course
Review by Yulia
Master's Class High School Chemistry Set is a course that would be perfect for a student in 11th or 12th grade or a chemistry loving child. It seems a bit challenging at first, but it gets easier to understand with each chapter. The set works perfectly together since The Student book is a textbook, and The Teacher Guide has all worksheets, lab notes sections with the full lab directions, quizzes and exams.

I really like that this course shows plenty of visual examples for the labs and in explanation of different topics. It is easy to follow and great for a visual learner. The author does a great job explaining the topics and the labs. The Teacher Guide gives two samples of the lab notes, so students can see what is expected of them. It also works wonderfully for a teacher to see how to correct the labs and what to look for in the student's notes.

I would highly recommend to use this set with the corresponding Master Books Academy course. It makes it more fun and enhances the understanding of the material.
Amazing Course!
Review by Krista
The Chemistry course from Master Books is an outstanding choice for students seeking a high-quality chemistry education grounded in a biblical perspective. The course offers clear and thorough explanations of fundamental concepts, complemented by engaging illustrations and hands-on experiments that make learning both enjoyable and effective. The lessons are well-organized and student-friendly, ensuring that complex topics are accessible and understandable. We particularly appreciate the integration of a biblical worldview throughout the course, providing a faith-based context that aligns perfectly with our values. This course not only equips students with essential chemistry knowledge but also reinforces their faith, making it an excellent and enriching educational experience.
A challenging course with all the helps and things you need to succeed!
Review by sara
Looking at this high school level course may seem totally scary, but there’s hope! Master Books makes teaching chemistry a breeze with multiple options to help you succeed! The course book is very appealing and full of color, each chapter is well laid out, from a biblical stand point and easy to teach or give to an independent student. It also goes through lab procedures with pictures when needed, which I appreciate.
The teacher’s guide, like all masterbooks courses, has everything you need: worksheets, lab reports, quizzes and exams. A supply list is included and answers in the back to use as you wish.
Now for the help! Master Books offers a supply kit purchase so you do not have to hunt everything down, as well as a Master Books academy video course! This goes over each lesson as well as labs, so you and your student will be a chemistry success in no time!
Great course!
Review by Dustie
Chemistry is one of those subjects that tends to intimidate people. This course is a pleasant surprise. I really like that this course has shorter lessons that allow this complex subject to be digested in bite-sized chunks.
The course is well-organized. Expect to spend an hour or so each day, five days per week on this course. It is definitely a high school level course, heavier than lower levels. Each week there are reading assignments, worksheets, a quiz, and a lab. Every 3 or 4 weeks there is a test to ensure the student is mastering the concepts. I like this design, since the concepts build on one another.
The teacher guide is consistent with other MasterBooks courses. It has the schedule, course objectives, worksheets, quizzes, exams, and answer key. I appreciate that there is a sample lab report for reference. A grade sheet is included, also.
I am so thankful that there is a Master Books Academy course to go along with it.
Overall, it is great to have a creation-based chemistry course that helps prepare the high school student for a college chemistry course and gives them a greater appreciation for the created world.
Had to Drop this class
Review by Victoria
My non-mathy son dropped chemistry early into the course. He also didn't find the academy videos very helpful in explaining what he didn't understand. It could be that I chose the wrong course for him and not a problem with the curriculum.
