LIVE LEARNING Immersive Introduction to Chemistry

Like the name says, this course is an introduction to chemistry. So it’s a good starting point for learners that have never seen a periodic table. If your learner already knows a bit about chemistry, this course will promote a deeper level of understanding for science. Organizational and study skills are highly emphasized. We cover physical sciences topics at the junior high level and bridge into high school chemistry fundamentals.

Dates and Times for Live Classes:

June 23 – Sept 3 Section:
Tuesday-Thursday 9AM PST schedule
(one lesson per week)

Summer session Intro Chem meets every Tuesday and Thursday from June 23 to Sept 3, 2020 from 9-9:55 AM PST (Pacific time). Schedule is below.

Dr Scott, course instructor

These chemistry classes will cover one lesson per week, and meet twice per week. Tuesdays will be the “main lecture” and Thursdays will be “worksheet review and questions.” Learners may attend both, one, or choose the pre-recorded video option for any lesson.

Course Information

Prerequisite: You are ready for this course if you have a general idea of what an atom is and can do simple arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division).

Description: You’ll learn about science by using analogies that relate to concepts you already know well, and we’ll show you how to best use the digital materials here to get and keep your brain running at its peak performance level. Most of the math, technical jargon, and complicated chemicals have been removed from the topics so you can truly master the chemistry concepts. We’ll cover all those important, traditional chemistry topics that would be found in a textbook, yet the material has been restructured and reorganized to flow logically and actually make sense to those doing chemistry for the first time. If you already know a bit about chemistry, the unique format of this course will provide a fresh perspective for deeper insights as to how the world is connected by science.

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. Plan to spend about an hour out of class for each lesson.

The big ideas you’ll be learning:

  1. Reading the periodic table
  2. Understanding chemical bonding
  3. Writing chemical reactions
  4. Conducting a laboratory experiment
  5. Gaining confidence approaching science
