Gain an in-depth understanding of fundamentals of chemistry in this course.
Chemistry is the branch of science that studies of the composition, structure, and properties of matter. This course will introduce you to the fundamentals of chemistry. You will study the atomic and molecular structure of matter and the changes it undergoes through chemical reactions. You will also look into the three states of matter, examine the periodic table including groups, compounds, metals, and nonmetals, and study acids and bases.
This is an introductory course for students with limited background in chemistry; basic concepts such as atomic and molecular structure, solutions, phases of matter, and quantitative problem solving will be emphasized with the goal of preparing students for further study in chemistry.
