Freely Educate is a FABULOUS site with great resources for teachers and homeschoolers.  There I found info about a wonderful chemistry program for teachers and homeschoolers to use for more info link back to freely educate below.
The author, Joey Hajda, describes Friendly Chemistry like this:
"Friendly Chemistry was written using simple language and a host of analogies to make learning (and teaching!) chemistry easy. We believe that the chemistry concepts presented in Friendly Chemistry are NOT watered-down. The concepts are just explained in ways that are readily understood by most learners. Coupled with these explanations is a host of teaching aids, labs and games which makes the learning concrete and multi-sensory. Students find the course fun and painless. Parents often comment, 'I wish I had had this when I was taking chemistry. Now it all makes so much sense!'"
Visit the Friendly Chemistry site for answers to questions about teaching the program in your homeschool or co-op or for answers to using the program in private or public schools.
