Course Curriculum

Chemical Bonding and Structure: Understanding ionic and covalent bonds involves comprehending how atoms form bonds by sharing electrons (covalent) or transferring electrons (ionic) to achieve stability. This topic explores the characteristics and differences between these fundamental types of chemical bonds.
Chemical Reactions: Exploration of combustion and redox reactions entails understanding combustion as a rapid reaction involving oxygen and a fuel source, and redox reactions involving electron transfer between reactants, encompassing oxidation and reduction processes.
Redox Chemistry: Understanding oxidation and reduction in chemical reactions involves recognizing oxidation as the loss of electrons and increase in oxidation state, while reduction involves gaining electrons and a decrease in oxidation state. This topic focuses on the interplay of these reactions.
Chemical Calculations: Introduction to formulae and equation writing covers the basics of representing chemical compounds through formulae and balancing chemical equations, providing the foundational skills required for further calculations in chemistry.
Qualitative Analysis: Identifying substances based on their characteristics involves using various techniques like color, solubility, and reactivity to determine the presence of specific ions or compounds in a given sample, aiding in qualitative identification and analysis.
