Welcome to the Principles of Inorganic Chemistry 1 Teaching course. Chemistry is the study of matter and its changes. This means that chemistry is the study of everything. This course will focus on atomic structure, compounds and their properties, reactions, and stoichiometric changes, states of matter, and end with energy changes. This is the first of a two course series in chemistry. The second course will cover topics including reaction rate and equilibrium, solution chemistry, and acidic and basic solutions. This course incorporates practice problems that need to be submitted in addition to the content, quiz, discussion, classroom application, and final project progress expected each week.
The course emphasizes both content and teaching practices that can be used in the classroom.
This Online Endorsement Course meets the Utah State Science Endorsement Course Requirements for:
- Chemistry: General/Inorganic Chemistry
- Biological Science: General Chemistry
- Middle Level: General Chemistry
- Physical Science: General/Inorganic Chemistry
- Earth Science: General/Inorganic Chemistry
- Environmental Science: General Chemistry
Additionally, this online science endorsement course requires participants to practice the science lessons in either a classroom setting or with a group of at least five individuals (can be family, friends, neighbors, etc.). To take this course, you will need to be able to have weekly access to one of these two settings to complete assignments.
Upon successful completion, the participants will receive 3.0 Southern Utah University Credits for EDUC 5210 Science: Principles of Inorganic Chemistry 1 (included in the cost of the course).
