This two-quarter program provides the equivalent of a year-long study of general chemistry and is designed to prepare students for upper division work in chemistry, biology, and the environmental sciences. Activities will include asynchronous video lectures, synchronous problem-solving workshops via Zoom, and laboratory experiences conducted at home. Students should be comfortable with algebra, logarithms, and exponential functions.

Topics covered in the first quarter will include: stoichiometry, structure of the atom, periodic properties, bonding, thermochemistry, and gases. In the second quarter, we will cover  intermolecular forces, equilibrium, acids and bases, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, and kinetics. Home l aboratory exercises will focus on developing good lab habits and skills while applying the principles learned in class to real-world problems.

To successfully complete this program, students should have access to a computer, internet for synchronous activities, and access to Canvas. Students should expect to participate in up to 5 hours of synchronous meetings per week using Zoom in Canvas. Students will have access to alternatives to synchronous participation if conditions require.
