About This Course

|
ACE Approved 2022

General Chemistry I familiarizes you the basic principles of chemistry. This course begins with an analysis of matter and its components, stoichiometry, and intermolecular force and phase changes. Properties of liquids, solids, and gasses are also explored in our online General Chemistry I course. This foundation is used to examine solubility, colligative properties of solutions, chemical reactions, quantum theory and atomic structure, and chemical periodicity. Other topics you will learn include main group and transition elements.

It was time for my next big thing.

StraighterLine made it very easy and convenient to take all the prerequisites I needed to take to advance my career in Science. I liked how flexible it was. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Things I love about StraighterLine

Time for me

I was able to fit classes into my free time and spend 10 hours a week when I was available.

Variety of courses

I took five courses with StraighterLine and saved thousands of dollars on my degree.
