Immersive Chemistry First Semester: LIVE LEARNING

This course is for learners that have, or are about to, complete Immersive Introduction to Chemistry, which is the first course in the Immersive Chemistry series. It’s a fun, approachable course covering the topics normally found in a high school chemistry curriculum.

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 2020: September 15 – December 17
Tuesday-Thursday 9AM PST / noon EST schedule
(one lesson/two classes per week)

Fall 2020 Immersive Chemistry First Semester will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from September 15 to December 17, 2020 from 9-9:50 AM PST (Pacific time) or noon-12:50 PM EST. We start the week after Labor Day (USA holiday Sept 7). There is a break for Thanksgiving week (USA holiday Nov 26) the entire fourth week of November.

  • If you are currently taking Intro Chem during Summer 2020, this course continues AT THE SAME TIME after a one week break for Labor Day. Stay on track and keep the same schedule.
  • Consider taking Writing Lab Reports to save time later. Note this class is at a different time of day!!!

Course Information

Prerequisite: You are ready for this course if you have completed Immersive Introduction to Chemistry or a similar course covering the periodic table, bonding, reactions, experiments, and lab reports. It’s a fun, approachable course covering the topics normally found in a high school chemistry curriculum, so you’ll need to have the fundamentals down before taking this course.

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.
