Course Description

Discover a world built by atoms, shaped by molecules and kept running with chemical reactions! This subject is an introduction to the world of chemistry. You will learn about atoms, the building blocks of everything around us. You’ll learn about how these atoms are put together to make compounds, to make most of the materials that we use every day. We’ll have some fun looking at some common types chemical reactions and finally, we’ll use our knowledge of these chemical reactions along with a new way of quantifying the world in order to be able to make powerful predictions about quantitative chemistry. #### What will I learn? * Identify different types of matter around you * Develop an appreciation for some of the historical milestones in the development of modern chemistry * Describe the basic structure of the atom, giving specific details for any given element * Develop knowledge of the periodic table a...

Having previously taken 2 Open2Study courses that I didn't like, and knowing another person who has taken a dozen or more of their classes and not being impressed, I was not planning to take another. But this friend said their Chemistry class was the best of the Open2Study courses she's taken. So I signed up because I wanted to learn a little Chemistry to simplify Harvard's excellent science of cooking class. I can tell it is definitely better than the other Open2Study classes I've taken. The explanations are simple and I don't get buried in memorizing lots of facts. (Though I think the last 1/4 was just a couple algebra equations so I would have liked less material there and more on the reactions... particularly the fun hints about chemistry you can do at home). I liked the professors fun story/example of mixing liquids in surprising ways. In general he has a bit of humor and is not boring to watch. But I won't say that this is a gr...

It is worth the time you spend, but if you want in depth knowledge, you will need to take one of the chemistry courses on Coursera or Open Yale.
