Welcome to Chemistry 109!
If you have not yet worked through the Introduction, please do so before beginning this section.
Today’s work begins with a review of important fundamentals of chemistry. We expect that you are familiar with these ideas and are ready to use them to help you learn more chemistry. Then we introduce fundamental ideas about energy and matter. These ideas will recur throughout this course and we expect they will serve you well during your entire career.
Here are links to all sections of the work for Day One. Be sure to complete them before your whole-class meeting.
D1.1 Substances and Chemical Reactions
D1.2 Atoms, Molecules, and Ions
D1.3 Chemical Symbols, Formulas, and Equations
D1.4 The Periodic Table
D1.6 Structure, Energy, and States of Matter
D1.7 What’s Ahead?
