This course is designed to cover subjects in advanced high school chemistry courses, correlating to the standard topics as established by the American Chemical Society. This course is a precursor to the Advanced Chemistry Coursera course. Areas that are covered include atomic structure, periodic trends, compounds, reactions and stoichiometry, bonding, and thermochemistry.

Chemistry course helped me to refresh my knowledge in basic chemistry after years of my education. The teachers are great - Dr Allison Soult and Dr Kim Woodrum. The course takes you through the concepts of atomic structure, periodic table and trends, bonding, stoichiometry and thermochemistry. The teachers have been able to present the topics in a very interesting way. This 10 weeks course will be a great help to students, particularly those who are weak in the subject, to develop an interest and refresh their knowledge before joining a serious course of study in Chemistry. Practice problems help learners to test the understanding at each stage of learning.
Ester is taking this course right now and found the course difficulty to be medium.
i'm italian and i'm preparing myself for the university entry test. I found this course very very useful and the teachers are awesome: even though they explain even the more difficult things in a very detailed way in the end everything results super clear!
