This class is an intensive program designed to be equivalent to the first half of a year-long study of general chemistry. The class will begin by learning the structure of the atom, and then why atoms combine the way they do to form various substances. These concepts will also be used to explain why different substances have different chemical properties. Additional topics covered include stoichiometry, aqueous solutions, thermochemistry, and gases. Experience gathering and analyzing data will be included. Altogether, this will prepare students for the second half of summer general chemistry, and / or other studies that require a half year or less of general chemistry.

As a full time summer program, the general expectation is that the combination of live class sessions, out-of-class reading, problem-solving practice, experimentation, and watching of recorded lectures will be a 40-hour per week commitment. 

Our approach includes both synchronous (live) and recorded material. Learning will include interactive workshops, as well as recorded lectures and at-home experimental data collection and analysis. Live interactive workshops (mornings) will require an internet connection and device with audio & video, such as a Chromebook. If students find themselves unable to participate due to technology, caregiving obligations, economic disruption, health risk, or illness, they can work with faculty to pursue alternate options to earn related credit.
