  • Welcome!

    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. Resources are for teachers, parents and students. Some are free, some require a subscription, but there should be plenty of things to keep you busy.

    You’ll also be able to read out about all of my professional activities, including my books and my other writing.

  • New Book Project!

    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.

  • AACT

    My affiliation with the American Association of Chemistry Teachers has taken, and continues to take, multiple forms.

    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 AACT.

    I have written for the AACT’s Chemistry Solutions magazine on more than one occasion, and will be conducting a webinar for the association later in the 2016-17 school year.

    The Periodic Table Abuse Project catalogs the multitude of ways that the beauty and order of the periodic table is abused!

  • Improve Test Scores

    Many students find chemistry a challenge. The often abstract ideas and concepts, coupled with some demanding math, can make any chemistry course a stressful one. Whether students are simply looking to improve a class grade or want to ace the AP exam or SAT subject test, individual mentoring and tutoring can help them to achieve their goals.

    Face to face tutoring with me is now available literally worldwide, via tools such as Skype, Google+ Hangouts and other virtual forums. You too can become an ex-student of mine, like all of the guys in the picture to the right, who found one of my books in the MIT bookstore!
