Chemistry: Semester 2
Description: This course is a continuation of introductory chemistry (Chemistry: Semester 1) and includes topics such as moles, states of matter, behaviors of gases, solutions, reaction rates, chemical equilibriums, solubility, acids and bases, oxidation-reduction reactions, electrochemistry, and nuclear chemistry. Throughout their studies, students will organize the elements that make up our Earth and atmosphere; solve chemical problems dealing with results from an experiment or reaction; and discuss atoms–their makeup, what they do, and how they do it.
Course Learning Outcomes
The main purpose of this course is to help you become proficient in core principles of chemistry.
Here are some of the main things you will learn to do:
- Organize the elements that make up our Earth and our atmosphere.
- Solve, in a common-sense fashion, chemical problems dealing with results from an experiment or reaction.
- Discuss atoms—their makeup, what they do, and how they do it.
- Reliable access to a computer and internet connection
