Introduction to Chemistry- an online course


Duke University is offering an online course called "Introduction to Chemistry". The 9 weeks course begins from 20th January 2014. You can earn a verified certificate for the course.

About the Course:

This is an introductory course for students with limited or no background in chemistry; chemical problem solving will be emphasised. The goal of the course is to prepare students for further study in the chemistry needed for many science, health, and policy professions. Topics include introductions to atoms, molecules, ions, the periodic table, stoichiometry, chemical reactions, bonding, thermochemistry, and gas laws.

Each week the course will contain short video lectures with interactive questions embedded in the lectures. Students will have opportunities to practice each week via exercises at two levels of depth: one set of foundational problems directly related to lecture videos and another set of problems requiring more synthesis of ideas and application of pre-existing algebra skills. Students who complete the course while earning an average of 70% of more on the foundational problem sets, writing assignment, and exams will receive a signed statement of accomplishment. Students who complete the course and achieve an average of 85% or more on the foundational problem sets, advanced problem sets, writing assignment, and exams will receive a signed statement of accomplishment with distinction.

Dorian A. Canelas will be the course instructor. The course will have a work load of 6-8 hours of work / week. It will be taught in English and the subtitles will be available in English.
