The course covers significant figures, units, classification, the mole concept, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, acids and bases, redox reactions, solutions, atomic structure, Lewis structures, molecular geometry, the gas laws, and equilibrium.

 

Materials needed:

 

     Exploring Creation With Chemistry, 2nd Edition, Apologia

Book

Solutions and Test Booklet

CD-ROM Companion

3-Ring Binder (1 ½”)

College Ruled Paper

Tab dividers numbered 1-16
