Honors Chemistry CK12 Class Group

During mid-year conferences, many students indicated they could use some additional help studying.  So, I’ve created a class group on CK12.  It’s totally free, and has a TON of resources you can use.

I’d like all Honors Chemistry students to enroll.  Joining the class allows me to share content with you and keep track of how well you do on your CK-12 practice assignments (these are totally optional, and not graded).

To join:
1. Go to www.ck12.org
2. Click Join to create an account, or Sign In.
3. Click Groups.
4. Click Join a Group.
5. Enter code: kbwmo

I think this will be a powerfully useful tool for you as you continue to develop your chemistry understanding.
