Chemistry Educator, Tutor & Author
Announcing an exciting new project!
A couple of weeks ago I signed a contract with the Hachette Book Group USA, to adapt Sam Kean’s wonderful book The Disappearing Spoon for younger readers. Yeah, THAT Disappearing Spoon!
Many of you will be familiar with the original book, and I hope that you will also enjoy the new version.
In June of 2015 I was elected from a field of 27 educators across the USA, as the inaugural, High School Ambassador on the Governing Board of the American Association of Chemistry Teachers. Many thanks to all who voted for me.
I look forward to serving to the best of my ability, to promoting the mission of the AACT, and to supporting high chemistry teachers as I can.
The Periodic Table Abuse Project catalogs the multitude of ways that the beauty and order of the periodic table is abused!
Whether it be symbol abuse, organizational abuse or just plain old ugly disrespect, I’m looking to out everyone.
If you see an abuse then please contact me.
On October 3rd of 2014, the American Institute of Physics announced that my book, How To Make A Universe With 92 Ingredients had won their, 2014 Science Communication Award in the children’s category.
Tremendously exciting, and my sincere thanks go to all that helped with the book.
My accepted proposal outlines plans for a book that links the discovery of the chemical elements to the people and stories behind them, all in a way the will be appealing for a younger audience.
I am Tweeting about my adventure using the hashtag #dingleelements
My latest book, the 2nd Edition of REA’s AP Chemistry Crash Course, was released on January 15th, 2014.
Fully updated for the new AP exam, you can order on Amazon right now, or alternatively find in at your local bookstore.
The book comes with online access to a practice exam and lots of ‘Test Tips’. A must to boost that AP grade!
As a freelancer and author, I have written for many different clients, partners and publishers.
My work ranges from children’s books, through assessment materials, on to textbooks as well as article & blog writing.
I am constantly looking for new short, mid, and long term projects to be involved with, and I would love to discuss your wants & needs when it comes to chemistry writing of all types.
Welcome to Adrian Dingle’s Chemistry Pages.
Here you’ll find a multitude of resources for the teaching and learning associated with high school chemistry at all levels, and even a little beyond. Some are free, some require a subscription, but there should be plenty of things to keep you busy whether you are looking for worksheets, tutoring or general advice.
Complete with those crazy American spellings for ‘color’ in the paint and firework spreads, the North American release represents the latest of my books making it into a ‘new’ language!
