ChemTutor Use Tips

There may be multiple related sub-modules within a module. For example, in the case of Math Fundamentals, there are three sub-modules. You can click on a module, and you will be brought to its tutorial page, containing the content for that topic. If you are going in the recommended order for Math Fundamentals, you start with Percentages. There will be one or more video tutorials on each topic; the tutorials are presented in the order we suggest you watch them in, but you may choose to study topics in any order that suits your needs.  After watching a video tutorial, you can practice problems related to the video by clicking the practice button below the video. 
If you would like to see how you are doing on the problem sets, you can click on the My Progress button near the top of the website. This will bring you to an overview of all the tutorials and your scores–but don’t worry, you are not being graded! The progress page is for you to see your past scores, how many tutorials you’ve completed, and where to focus your practice.
