This is a basic introductory chemistry course suitable for students with a little bit of physical science background. We cover a range of relevant topics from basic structure of the atom and the history of atomic theory, through writing and balancing chemical equtions, and finally all the way up to my favorite subject, stoichiometry, where we tie all of that background knowledge together and apply it to the idea of limiting reagents.
Upon completion of this course, students will have the background they need to be successful in a 2nd year of high school chemistry at the 11th or 12th grade level. This course will also provide the background necessary for students who wish to progress to a college or university.
This course is designed for students with some physical science background at the middle school level. It is also essential that students have a solid understanding of algebra.
