Course Information

Prerequisite: You are ready for this course if you have completed Immersive Chemistry – Introduction or a similar course covering the periodic table, bonding, reactions, experiments, and lab reports.

Description: You’ll learn about science by using analogies that relate to concepts you already know well. You’ll be able to explain the world scientifically using Plain English, and you’ll be designing experiments and organizing scientific data. Most of the math, technical jargon, and complicated chemicals have been removed from the topics so you can truly master the chemistry concepts. In additional to covering all those important, traditional, first semester chemistry topics that would be found in a textbook, you’ll learn practical stuff and deeper insights about everyday substances including water, air, solvents, soap, salts, minerals, fuels, food… and the famous baking-soda vinegar “volcano” reaction.

There’s a written assignment, with solutions, for each lesson so that the ideas sink in. You’ll get up to speed with chemistry fast and develop the skills needed to have fun succeeding in future chemistry and science courses.

The big ideas you’ll be learning:

  1. Using chemical building blocks that are not on the periodic table
  2. Understanding how chemical bonding affects real-world properties
  3. Analyzing chemical reactions to understand laboratory activities
  4. Using ratios to make scientific predictions
  5. Designing laboratory experiments and writing science reports
  6. Applying what you know about “little” molecules to understand “giant” molecules

Videos and material included: 230 videos (31 hours total) plus 45 printable pdfs including worksheets, answer keys and class notes. There are several lab demos and experiments to easily and safely conduct at home.

Topics: Topics are listed in the collapsible righthand sidebar at the top of this page. The topics will be active links to the course materials immediately when you sign up using the buttons to select between Single Course Lifetime Access or Get All the Courses!
