Exploring the Chemical World

Module Summary
All scientists use basic chemical knowledge every time they conduct laboratory experiments and all people use everyday household objects because of chemical knowledge. However, chemistry can be a complex science for high school students to master, so they need to build a solid foundation starting with the basics. The first few lessons in this module will teach and help

students to understand the chemical properties of elements and how those properties can cause elements to interact with each other. After students have grasped a working knowledge of elements and chemical reactions, they can explore more advanced topics like reactions rates, acids and bases, and the law of conservation.
