Learners explore the fundamental principles of Chemistry which characterize the properties of matter and how it reacts. Simulations and laboratory techniques are used to organize and analyze both qualitative and quantitative data. Simulations are also used to reinforce the content covered throughout the course. Topics include, but are not limited to measurement, atomic structure, chemical bonds, the periodic table, gas laws, properties of solids & liquids, solutions, stoichiometry, chemical reactions, and nuclear chemistry.
