Some terminologies you should be familiar with in this module are:
matter, elements, atoms, molecules, atomic number, mass number, isotopes,
half-life, valence electron, octect rule, ions, ionic bonds, covalent bonds,
hydrogen bonds, polar and non-polar
In order to study these structures (especially the internal ones) it is sometimes
necessary to dissect or cut apart the body parts. How and why body
