This series of videos gives an overview of the essential topics from a first-year college chemistry course. The level of study is also appropriate for advanced high school and homeschool students. Many of these subjects will be important prerequisites for further study in other scientific fields, including biology, physics, geology, astronomy, engineering, etc.
This is a video-based course that allows you to learn at your own pace. Many of the videos include example problems worked in full. You will find additional handouts and activities for most videos. There are also full-length practice tests available in our digital store. We welcome you to sign up for the Chemistry Club mailing list to receive free course updates.
