If your chemistry homework is starting to get the better of you, you’ll need to put it straight and tell it, “Hey, chemistry homework, I’m in charge here! I can get a hold of you!” Although in order to achieve that, you may require a little more than just a shouty voice aimed at invisible entities. Well, help is on hand! If you’ve got chemistry questions that you can’t find the answers for, there are plenty of places where you can locate them- you just need to know where to look!
Have you still got your course books?
First port of call is your textbooks (so let’s hope they haven’t been chewed too badly by your dog). It’s very likely that all the answers you need are contained in the course books you already have!
Libraries are a lucky bet.
If you can’t find the solutions or you don’t fully understand the ones given, there are still other resources available to you. Looking in your campus, or public library is a sensible idea. You should easily be able to find a plethora of chemistry books to help you. Remember, you can always ask a librarian if you require more assistance.
The internet isn’t just for fun!
Searching the internet will present you with an abundance of data. Although it’s possible to find the answers in seconds, it may also be quite a challenge because of the sheer volume of information and sites to trawl through. If you look at reputable and renowned educational or science websites, you won’t waste any valuable time and will be sure to find what you’re looking for.
Try academic and science magazines.
Don’t just look in books! Magazines and periodicals are also fabulous resources for chemistry topics. You’ll find plenty of handy articles and essays contained there, and you’ll be able to find most at your libraries and on the internet.
Ask other students.
Still stuck? Why not ask your fellow class students? Some of them may be able to help. Some may have even been stuck on the same problem as you and only solved it last night!
Your teacher can help.
If friends aren’t any good, then ask your teacher. You may be surprised at just how helpful they can be, at either explaining things more clearly to you on a one to one basis or by pointing you in the direction of the resource you require. Don’t feel awkward- your professor can help!
