Immersive Chemistry Second Semester: LIVE LEARNING

This experiments-oriented course is for learners that have, or are about to, complete Immersive Chemistry First Semester. Please contact Dr Scott at info@learnwithdrscott.com if you are not sure if you are ready for this course, so that we can make sure everybody is in the right class;)

Dates and Times for Live Classes:

Fall 2021: Aug 31 – Dec 16, 2021
Tuesday-Thursday 2 PM PST / 5 PM EST schedule
(one lesson/two classes per week)

Fall 2021 Immersive Chemistry Second Semester will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from August 31 to December 16, 2021 from 2-2:50 PM PST (Pacific time) or 5-5:50 PM EST. There is a break for Labor Day and Thanksgiving week.

These chemistry classes will cover one lesson per week, and meet twice per week. There are pre-recorded videos for any live classes you cannot attend. It’s easy to mix and match between the live and pre-recorded lessons.

Course Information

Prerequisite: You are ready for this course if you have completed Immersive Chemistry – First Semester or a similar course covering polyatomic ions, IMFs, balancing reactions, limiting reactants, titration, and designing experiments.

Description: You’ll continue to learn more about science by using analogies that relate to concepts you already know well. Plus, you’ll see and perform a variety of laboratory activities to reinforce the concepts hands-on. Most of the advanced math, technical jargon, complicated chemicals and fancy lab equipment have been removed from the topics so you can truly master the chemistry concepts. In additional to covering all those important, traditional, second semester chemistry topics that would be found in a textbook, you’ll learn practical stuff and deeper insights into real world chemical systems. We’ll spend about half the course understanding acid-base-water chemistry conceptually, in addition to making pH predictions. You’ll learn how the whole world is in equilibrium, why matter flows, the conditions under which chemical reactions occur (or not), how to generate electricity, and the relation of all these concepts to this invisible stuff called energy.

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 applying what you know about chemistry and science to understand how the world works.

The big ideas you’ll be learning:

  1. Understanding what happens in and over water, the world’s most common perhaps most complex substance
  2. Explaining the world using equilibrium
  3. Understanding the difference between equilibrium vs a changing system
  4. Analyzing and (optionally) building heterogeneous, flowing experimental rigs
  5. Using logarithms, equations, and tables of scientific data to make predictions
  6. Generating electricity
