Watch: What is Achieve?
  1. Diagnostics with Personalized Study Plan

    Personalized study plans provides instructional resources that target each student's identified growth areas.

  2. Insightful Reports

    Instructor reports provide insights into performance by full class, individual students and learning objectives.

  3. Worked Example Videos

    Worked example videos created exclusively for IGC from popular YouTube educator, Tyler DeWitt, make chemistry concepts clear and understandable through the effective use of whiteboard videos.

  4. Interactives

    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.

  5. Homework Problems

    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.

  6. Insight Cards

    Insight cards provide quick views of student work in a just-in-time way keeping what is important and current right at the surface! You can drill down for more detailed views to see individual student or whole class performance.

  7. 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.

  8. Interactives & Worksheets

    IGC worksheets were designed to work seamlessly with a set of Interactive General Chemistry interactives. The worksheets can be used for in-class or virtual group work or individual work outside of class.

  9. iClicker Integration

    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.
