This course will provide students with an engaging and effective online experience in the field of chemistry. The course is divided into four distinct parts, each consisting of three, fifteen-lesson units. Each of the units is based around a central concept. Students will find graded assessments after each lesson and an exam at the end of each part of the course. Lab activities are found throughout the course; they serve as reinforcement of the material and an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge through experiments and activities._
Chemistry is an important science course that challenges the students to apply their studies in previous sciences to new theories, models, and problems. The course begins with a discussion of the history and importance of chemical principles, moves through the various models of the atom and chemical reactions, explores relationships among liquids, gases, and solids, and investigates the role of energy in these relationships. The course ends with a unit on organic chemistry, a branch of the science that focuses on the molecules important to living things._
Part 1 Description_
The first unit of the course takes students back to the roots of chemistry and focuses on the early scientists who were important in laying the foundations of this science. This unit also covers the organization of the periodic table and a survey of the most common elements. The next unit focuses on the development of the different atomic models and exposes students to the most recent research describing the structure of the atom. The final unit expands upon the structure of the atom and discusses how bonds form on a molecular level and the impact that these bonds have on the characteristics of the atoms involved._

Part 2 Description_
This part begins with a unit split between an introduction to the quantum nature of the atom and the basics of reactions. Students will learn about orbitals and energy states and how these variables affect the shape of the molecules of which they are part. The course then continues to cover a unit on the gas laws and the relationships between the temperature, pressure, and volume of gases. Also covered in this part of the course is a comparison between the different types of matter and the internal and external forces that affect the characteristics of matter._
