Introduction to Chemical Reactions: Online course by Duke University

Introduction to Chemical Reactions


This is an introductory course for students with limited background in chemistry; basic concepts involved in chemical compositions, periodic trends, reactions, and quantitative problem solving will be emphasized with the goal of preparing students for further study in chemistry.

About the course
This is the first part of a two part introductory course for students with limited or no background in chemistry; in this part of the course, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, nomenclature, and chemical problem solving will be emphasized.

The goal of the course sequence is to prepare students for further study in chemistry as needed for many science, health, and policy professions. Topics include introductions to atoms, molecules, ions, the periodic table, stoichiometry, and chemical reactions.

Students should have a background in high school level algebra and should bring their enthusiasm for learning and curiosity to the course.

Course Format
The class will consist of videos of lectures and chemical demonstrations; many of the videos contain integrated concept check questions. Students will also be able to practice and earn points through standalone weekly quizzes and biweekly advanced problem sets. Interested students can participate in an optional writing assignment (required for "distinction" level statement of accomplishment.) At the end of the course all students will take a two part exam.
