    Forward: by Leon Lederman This is the second volume of a three-volume cut and paste guide to the Physics First curricu-lum. Each volume, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, is tasked to supply guides to the best mate-rials available for instruction in each of the traditional disciplines. However, the emphasis in a coherent three-year curriculum is to ease access to the connections between disciplines, to seek the most useful materials in physics, which will facilitate the understanding of the chemistry topic under discussion and to indicate those components of chemistry that will be most useful for molecular biology. We also provide a guide to storytelling, to history of who did what, and how. The study of chemistry includes essentially all aspects of the behavior of atoms and molecules (a.k.a. elements and compounds). The structure of atoms is fundamental to chemical behavior and to the process by which atoms combine to form simple molecules such as H2 all the way to the complex molecules of life. Applications of chemistry dominate the societal impact of science from the essential applications to life sciences, to energy sources, to nuclear chemistry and to the development of drugs. Chemistry, the central discipline, has a pivotal role in the three-year se-quence that is designed to erase disciplinary boundaries, but to preserve disciplinary integrity. Please send your comments and questions to me at Credits: Three teachers contributed the chemistry resources: Frank Cardulla, Niles North High School, Skokie, IL, (retired) editor of ChemMatters, in-dexed ChemMatters. Bill Grosser, Glenbard South High School, Glen Ellyn, IL provided ideas and examples of cooperative learning and use of technology in the classroom. Lee Marek, University of Illinois, Chicago, indexed Flinn ChemTopic Laboratory Manuals and provided ideas and examples.

    Chemistry Textbooks

    Textbooks are important in spite of the Internet. They affect both the student and teacher alike. Teachers rely upon textbooks; they serve as ready-made courses and define the material that stu-dents will learn from lesson plans, homework assignments and tests. Selection of a textbook is important because you will probably be using it for at least five years. The American Chemical Society web site lists many textbooks available for high school chemis-try: The following list of chemistry textbooks (some of them from the ACS list) gives the web links to their publisher. The order here has no particular significance. If your favorite book is not on this list, let us know. As you will see from the The Textbook Letter (in the following section), textbook selection is never easy and in some states rather interesting.
