More About The Course
Chemistry is everywhere. It is in your body, your garden, your clothes, your food, your plastic bags and your shampoo. Knowing chemistry is knowing something about why things are the way they are and how we can make things better. Making better bags, stronger clothes, brighter paints and more effective drugs.
Chemistry is a fascinating science. But before diving deep into chemistry, you have to know the basics. This course provides you with these basics. When you complete this course, you are ready to start college level chemistry classes.
