LaunchPad contains resources for you and your students. In this tutorial, we'll take a detailed look at both types separately.

When you're ready to create your LaunchPad course, you can click the following link to go to the landing page of LaunchPad for Living by Chemistry. We also offer a course tour for Living by Chemistry that will help you get started using this LaunchPad.

What resources are available for my students?

From your LaunchPad home page, click Resources, then Content by Type. You'll see a list of all the resources available to your students. We'll now take a closer look at each.



A complete online version of the textbook, the e-Book is fully integrated into LaunchPad and includes flexible notes and highlighting features. In addition, instructors can easily hide chapters or sections that they don’t cover in their course, rearrange the order of chapters and sections, and add their own content directly into the e-Book.


Lewis Dot Puzzle App

This online activity gives students hands-on experience with Lewis dot symbols and structures, and helps them to gain a deeper understanding of bonds.


Practice Quizzes

With over 200 additional questions, editable multiple-choice quizzes are available for each chapter. Students can take practice quizzes through LaunchPad.

Welcome Page

The welcome page provides an introduction to LaunchPad. It explains the Welcome Unit Quiz and provides answers to a few Frequently Asked Questions.

Welcome Unit Quiz

In order to get familiar with LaunchPad, see how it works, and know what it contains, you can test your students’ understanding by having them take the brief quiz included in this unit. The quiz will show students where something is (like how to find their grades) and then ask them to confirm that they understand. Hopefully this will allow them to see ALL that LaunchPad offers, and use the product to its fullest.


What resources are available for instructors?

From the same screen where you've been viewing student resources, you can scroll down to see those available to instructors. Let's now take a closer look at each.
