Chemistry B focuses on the energy involved in chemistry and the uses for several types of chemical reactions. Students begin by refreshing and deepening their understanding of the basics of matter and their relation to energy. Next, students explore the properties of solutions, including acids, bases, and their reactions. Then, students dive into thermodynamics, electrochemistry, organic chemistry, and finally nuclear chemistry. In this course, students develop a solid understanding of several universal scientific principles and learn to manipulate the applications of chemistry in real-world settings. This course uses a multimedia format that includes text, videos, animations, interactive activities, and group discussions. In self-check activities and quizzes, students practice what they learn and correct misconceptions or uncertainties before taking assessments. Students complete a unit exam and deliver a unit project in each unit.
