LIVE LEARNING Immersive Chemistry First Semester

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. 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:

June 23 – Oct 1 Section:
Tuesday-Thursday 11AM PST schedule
(one lesson per week)

Summer session First Semester Immersive Chemistry will meet every Tuesday and Thursday from June 23 to Oct 1, 2020 from 11-11:55 AM PST (Pacific time). There is a break for Labor Day (USA holiday) on Sept 8. Schedule is below image.

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 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.
