About this Course
That is an introductory course for college students with restricted background in chemistry; primary ideas concerned in chemical reactions, stoichiometry, the periodic desk, periodic tendencies, nomenclature, and chemical downside fixing shall be emphasised with the objective of getting ready college students for additional research in chemistry as wanted for a lot of science, well being, and coverage professions.
Syllabus – What you’ll study from this course
4 hours to finish
Over the seven weeks of Introduction to Chemistry: Reactions and Ratios, it is possible for you to to progress from a most simple information of matter and power to fixing attention-grabbing actual world chemical response stoichiometry issues. Every lesson within the course introduces some new ideas that permit you to construct upon the fabric from earlier classes, so finishing the coursework within the order that it’s delivered shall be most useful for growing an intensive understanding of synthesized info. This course is meant for college students with little or no background within the topic, however a powerful basis in algebra is required to unravel a number of the issues.Within the first unit, the course will first introduce the fundamental ideas of scientific strategies and measurement. Then we are going to discuss matter, power, and stoichiometry. Final, we ready a number of lab demonstrations by Dr. Ken Lyle. I hope that you’re as excited as I’m to this wonderful world of chemistry! Good luck!

Matter and Power
<p>In case you are concerned with important figures in additional element, listed here are some <a href=”https://www.khanacademy.org/math/pre-algebra/decimals-pre-alg/sig-figs-pre-alg/v/significant-figures” goal=”_blank”>good movies</a> to observe on Khan Academy.</p><p>This week we are going to proceed our explorations of matter and power. We are going to talk about the sub-atomic particles that govern chemical reactions, isotopes, anions, and cations. We are going to discover ways to identify compounds, calculate system plenty, convert between grams and moles, study periodic tendencies, and extra! A complicated issues set is posted now; that may be a longer task and is optionally available until you want to be eligible for the Honor’s Observe. You’ll be able to nonetheless earn a daily verified certificates with out finishing the superior downside units, so please make sure you maintain engaged on the conventional weekly workout routines.</p>

<p>On this week’s movies and workout routines (aka quizzes), we are going to discover ways to identify compounds, calculate system plenty, convert between grams and moles, study periodic tendencies, and extra!</p><p>I hope you loved the final two weeks of studying chemistry. Nice work on watching movies, posting on the dialogue discussion board and submitting your workout routines!</p>

Chemical Composition and Reactions
<p>Week 4 for Introduction to Chemistry: Reactions and Ratios is about to start! This week shall be stuffed with introductions to chemical compositions, chemical response terminology, and response calculations.</p><p>If any of the next questions curiosity you, then watching this week’s movies and performing some follow issues are in all probability a great way to get began! How a lot sodium is in my eating regimen? What quantity of pollution are in consuming water? How a lot iron is in iron ore for metal manufacturing? These of the sorts of issues it is possible for you to to handle this week.</p>
