We create engaging content for teaching chemistry
ChemMatters is a magazine that helps high school students find connections between chemistry and the world around them. Published since 1983 by the American Chemical Society’s Education Division, ChemMatters engages students with real-world applications of scientific concepts they learn in the classroom.
ChemMatters is published four times during the school year — October, December, February, and April.
A team of high school teachers puts together these guides for every issue of the magazine. The guides include resources needed to build lesson plans and incorporate articles into the classroom. The Teacher’s Guides for recent issues are all available for FREE online.
Teacher’s Guides are great for
