This class is designed to be equivalent to the first half of a year-long study of general chemistry. This is an intensive program. This class will be conducted remotely; only 6 hours will be in active online full-class meetings, with a general expectation that out-of-class reading, solving questions, conducting simple or virtual experiments, and watching recorded lectures requires a full time commitment. 


The class will begin by learning the structure of the atom. This knowledge will then be applied to understand why atoms combine the way they do to form various substances and also to explain why different substances have different chemical properties. Additional topics covered will include stoichiometry, aqueous solutions, thermochemistry, and gases. Laboratory will focus on developing good lab habits and skills while applying the principles learned in class to real-world problems.

Our work will be conducted remotely, using Canvas and Zoom. The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit.

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:

Medicine, environmental science, education, biology, and chemistry
