There’s no denying that chemistry is one of the more complex scientific disciplines out there. It is one of the first subjects students will be introduced under the science umbrella and, on top of it, incorporates a heavy amount of math. The latter fact can easily make chemistry an intimidating subject for students. The ideal chemistry teacher will be able to assuage feelings of uneasiness, and present the subject in an easily digestible and engaging way so as to help their students grasp the material as easily and thoroughly as possible.
