1.0 (yearlong course)
Physical Science (PHSC100) & Algebra 1 (MATH100)
In this course, students will deepen their understanding of the composition of matter and the mechanisms that cause it to change. They will also explore the mathematical relationships of chemical reactions and gas behavior. They will develop lab skills as they investigate chemical processes. Students will also research strategies for using chemistry to manage resources effectively.
*As part of the EVP program, this course will have a live class requirement once a week at a set time; please see the website for time choices. This live class will include teaching, discussion with classmates from around the world, demonstrations, questions and answers, and other aspects of a live classroom. Students will have weekly due dates and stay on a traditional coursework schedule.

Do you enjoy learning how the world works? One of the main goals of Chemistry is to understand the “why” behind so many physical phenomena and the properties of substances that we know exist. This course will open your eyes to the incredible complexity of our world and give you a greater appreciation for all that God has made. Although students are sometimes a bit anxious about taking a chemistry course, the greatest benefit of the live class is that you have the opportunity to ask questions in real time. Additionally, we have the chance to work through challenging concepts and participate in experiments as a part of a learning community. Please join us as we explore the interesting and exciting world of Chemistry together.
If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.
I loved the live classes. I liked being able to contact the teacher with questions and get responses immediately. I enjoyed the group discussions so I could see if any of my classmates were struggling with the same things I was struggling with.
I enjoyed that the class was filled with examples. I enjoyed the review games. I have a better understanding of Chemistry.
I loved the live classes, they were very fun and engaging. I liked the layout of the weekly assignments. I enjoyed the workload because it was enough that I remembered the material but not so much that it became a struggle.
