Achieve for Chemistry
Meeting students where they are, with content and a learning platform designed for the way they learn. Achieve is a comprehensive set of interconnected teaching and assessment tools. It incorporates the most effective elements from Macmillan’s market leading solutions—in a single, easy-to-use platform. Our resources were co-designed with instructors and students, using a foundation of learning research and rigorous testing. The resulting tools for before, during, and after class are proven to be engaging to students of all levels of preparedness, leading to better outcomes.
Achieve is a fully mobile, accessible, flexible, modular system to help you deploy and manage all your pre-class, in-class, and post-class curriculum in one place (and integrate it with your LMS if preferred) while gathering insights from it all in a simple and powerful interface.
In-line interactives simulations provide students with a way to interact with the material in a hands-on way, promoting the idea of learning by doing. Acclaimed PhET Simulations from the University of Colorado, Boulder further encourage quantitative exploration, while addressing specific problem-solving needs.
Homework problems serve as a front door to learning. Students can either answer a question immediately or study further before answering by clicking on the Resources tab to go directly to the appropriate section in the e-book. Each problem provides help in the form of hints, targeted feedback and detailed solutions to ensure every problem provides learning through practice.
Instructor Activity Guides
The IGC instructor activity guides were built around the Interactive General Chemistry text and interactives. Each activity guide provides at-a-glance metadata to make it easier to prepare and implement. Instructors can pair "preflection" assignments with follow-up reflection supported by pre-built clicker slide decks and/or reinforce student learning with post-activity homework assignments to follow up on the in-class activity. These flexible resources support a variety of teaching styles all emphasizing student engagement.
Prebuilt iClicker slide desks assist with instruction and help to easily facilitate reflection on activities, allowing instructors to check understanding and get feedback in real time. In addition, iClicker seamlessly integrates into the Achieve gradebook.
