    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course is a require pre-requisite for many science majors, especially chemistry major. The course provide interactive activities that display the common roles of elements around us. Furthermore, the course is not challenging and can be completed with little effort. Grasping the basic understanding of how atom, elements, compounds, etc... work will improve the common knowledge of things around us such as baking soda, detergent, bleach, etc...

    Course highlights:

    Hightlights of the course include basic structure of an atom, the electrons in the atom play many important roles for life such as photosynthesis and electricity. Stoichiometric relationship between gaseous compounds' properties such as pressure, volume, temperature, and quantity in moles. Basic understanding of the electromagnetic spectrum and how does light behave as well as the intensity of light is directly related to energy and inversely related to wavelength.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For first time takers, it is best to practice online and search for practice problems to do outside of class. Throughout the course there are many math related problems and it is best to prepare. It is easier if the students have the basic math knowledge from at least algebra 2 to be efficient in the class. Always ask yourself what would happen to Y if X were to change.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I definitely recommend this course since Professor Graves makes chemistry easy to understand while fun to learn. He makes the material engaging. This course is heavy in the amount of material one has to learn but it is definitely worthwhile.

    Course highlights:

    This course went over a lot of material and got more difficult as it went on. This course provides in depth understanding of the elements and how they interact with other elements. Not only that but this course allows for the understanding of chemical equations and how to balance them in addition to the understanding why there are anomalies and why they are that way.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For those considering this course, please keep in mind that chemistry is not an easy subject to understand. You must study on a daily basis so that the material will stick. Many of the test are cumulative so also study from the beginning and make a study schedule to follow and keep you in order.
