Chemistry lies in a kind of middle space with connections to math which provides its pattern, to physics, of which it is made, and to biology and geology, which it composes.
It also stands alone and is most frequently taught alone, being one of the basic three in high school science: biology, chemistry, and physics.
Unfortunately, as our understanding of chemistry has deepened, the high school curriculum has become increasingly abstract, increasingly distant from the reactions that fascinated the first chemists. Then, as it takes up a whole year, there seems to be no time to show how it undergirds biology and geology, and even botany, as holding the principles behind herbal values.
