Foundations of Chemistry
The Foundations of Chemistry course is designed to introduce students to the fundamental concepts in chemistry, the study of matter, and the changes it undergoes. The structure of matter and its interactions are studied via textbooks, laboratory investigations, and online activities.
Students will focus on a variety of subjects including the structure of atoms, matter, chemical reactions, and energy-matter interactions. They will develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills which are necessary for the transition to higher-level science courses.
