1) Matter and Chemical Bonding: Including the relationship between periodic tendencies, types of chemical bonding, and the properties of ionic and molecular compounds; The type of chemical reactions and the reactivity of starting materials, symbols and formulae to represent the structure and bonding of chemical substances.

2) Chemical Quantities: The mole concept and its significance in the analysis of chemical systems. Calculations based on quantitative relationships in balanced chemical reactions.

4) Solution and Solubility: The properties of solutions, the concept of concentration, and the importance of water as a solvent; solve quantitative problems involving solutions.

5) Gases & Atmospheric Chemistry: The laws that govern the behavior of gases; the relationships among the pressure, volume, and temperature of a gas, and solve problems involving quantity of substance in moles, molar masses and volumes, and the gas laws.

6) Hydrocarbons and Energy: The structure and properties of hydrocarbons, especially with respect to the energy changes that occur in their combustion; applying calorimetric techniques to the calculation of energy changes.

The course focuses on the basic concepts and theories of chemistry and allows students to study the behaviors of solids, liquids, gases, and solutions; explore changes and relationships in chemical systems; and understand how chemistry is related to products and processes that affect our lives and our environment. The course covers 11 chapters. The topics are detailed as follows:

This course enables students to enfance their understanding of chemistry through instructing the topics listed below with explanation of typical question examples. Each session will have homework and check/discussion of the questions. Students will develop problem-solving skills as they investigate chemical reactions, at the same time refining their ability to communicate scientific information. About 500 slides and hundreds of practice questions and answers are available.

1) Organic Chemistry: Bonding and shape of Organic Molecules. Nomenclature of organic compounds using the IUPAC system and common name. Chemical reactions of various organic compounds.

2) Structure and Properties: Quantum mechanical theory and how types of chemical bonding account for the properties of ionic, molecular, covalent network, and metallic substances. Products and technologies whose development has depended on understanding molecular structure, and technologies that have advanced the knowledge of atomic and molecular theory. The properties of solids and liquids, and the shape of simple molecules.

3) Energy Changes and Rates of Reaction: The energy transformations and kinetics of chemical changes. Determine energy changes for physical and chemical processes and rates of reaction, using experimental data and calculations.

4) Chemical System and Equilibrium: Le Chatelier's principle and solution equilibria. Investigate the behaviour of different equilibrium systems, and solve problems involving the law of chemical equilibrium. The importance of chemical equilibrium in various systems, including ecological, biological, and technological systems.

5) Electrochemistry:
Fundamental concepts related to oxidation-reduction and the interconversion of chemical and electrical energy. The functioning of simple galvanic and electrolytic cells and their description by equations; Quantitative problems related to electrolysis and their solution. Some uses of batteries and fuel cells and the importance of electrochemical technology to the production and protection of metals.
