Colourful Solutions for Chemistry IB Edition: C. Collingwood and D. Potter


The Colourful solutions package contains 10 books covering the IB requirement for Standard and Higher Level

Each Chapter covers a different Theme

Each Section has background theory, worked examples and programmable tests.

The Programmable tests generate (with the exception of the language based tests) a near infinite series of questions for unlimited practice. The user controls the number of questions as well as time allowed, for greater flexibility. They are designed to be either projected onto a white board or may be attempted directly from the computer. There is an option after each test is completed to generate an printable analysis.

New ZoomIn and ZoomOut facility - change text size to reduce eye strain.


Real benefits for students ... for LESS than 2 hours private tuition

Pass those exams

To pass IB chemistry exams an understanding of structure is fundamental to the majority of the concepts that follow. This software takes you through each idea in turn, with clear explanations and worked examples drawn from past papers. At the end of each section you can test yourself using the programmable tests until you are certain that you have the concepts under control. Practice, practice, practice.

Online help and support - a book that finally talks back to you!

A Chemistry teacher in-House... For the first time a book with real answers! If you have any problem with your studies you can contact the IB helpline. A helping hand for those last minute doubts during study.
