The major goal of Basic Chemistry is to introduce students to the fundamental aspects of chemistry while broadening their appreciation for the applications of chemistry in their lives. This four week course includes modules on properties of Matter, Measurement and the Mole, Atomic Structure, Nuclear Structure and Electrons, the Periodic Table and Chemical Reactions, and Bonding and Solutions. Students will complete virtual demonstrations and activities, view simulations and videos, listen to podcasts, conduct research and discuss concepts with their peers.
All course material is included within the online course. There is no need to purchase textbooks or material of any kind.
Please note if the student is taking this course for credit recovery, it is advised that you check with the student's school to confirm that the topics covered (see course syllabus) match those required by the school. You may also want to confirm with the school the process for receiving credits, which may involve an assessment administered separately by the school.
