Many students leave high school without being prepared for the rigors of college chemistry. This course is the second in a series designed to give students the opportunity to review topics at a pace conducive to their level, whether they are encountering the material for the first time or using the course as a refresher.
Allison Soult and Kim Woodrum bring their experience to the course covering stoichiometry, bonding, and thermochemistry. Instruction consists of concepts, calculations, and video demonstrations of the principles being discussed. Practice problems and end-of-unit assessments will help students gauge their understanding of the material.
Chemistry I is also open for enrollment on Canvas Network.
- Stoichiometry: Recall the concepts of actual, theoretical, and percent yields along with the idea of limiting and excess reactants.
- Bonding: Explore the bonding in molecular compounds to understand how electrons are shared and how these connections determine the three-dimensional geometry of molecules.
- Thermochemistry: Examine the energies associated with physical processes and chemical reactions, including how to relate a specific amount of reagent to the energy evolved or consumed in a reaction.
Prerequisite: Chemistry I.
Target Audience: Anyone is welcome, including high school students, prospective college students, and life long learners.
Course is offered by University of Kentucky.
