Summary/Abstract: In the research, a quantitative method intending to evaluate didactic capacity of four textbooks of organic chemistry used at upper secondary schools has been applied. Focusing on the arrangement of verbal and non-verbal elements, two Czech textbooks of organic chemistry were compared with two adequate Russian textbooks. The textbooks were characterized by coefficients of subject presentation, education control, orientation, and the total didactic capacity. Based on chi-square statistics, significance of the results is discussed and critically interpreted.
