The course presented here is the exact General Chemistry II course that I taught as a university professor in a Chemistry Department that was certified by the American Chemical Society, the professional organization for chemists. All topics that are essential to any General Chemistry II course are covered here in detail. My teaching style for this Udemy course is exactly how I taught in the lecture halls. Each topic is explained in detail, terms are defined and then examples are done to show how the theory is applied in practice.
As was the case when I was teaching at the university, students have access to ample supplemental material, all of which will be in the Resource Folders. In addition to the 25+ hours of lectures, I have included a downloadable audio mp3 file of each lecture. For each lecture, I’ve included a Practice Assignment where you can test your understanding of the material. Also included is a detailed answer key for each Practice Assignment. A total of nearly 100 examples are worked out in the lectures and for each section I have included a list of the problems that you can download and follow along. Any graphs, figures or tables presented in the lectures are also available as downloadable files.
This course assumes that you have completed a General Chemistry I course but may not have taken any chemistry in high school. This course, and my First Semester General Chemistry course also available on Udemy, are ideal for anyone who needs to take General Chemistry at the college level but did not have it in high school. These courses are also well-suited for those who need to refresh their knowledge of General Chemistry before taking it at the college level.
Since chemistry is a quantitative science, a working knowledge of high school algebra is needed. In this course, you will also need to be familiar with logarithms and exponential functions. If your math skills are weak, this course will show you what types of math calculations are needed and you can hone those skills prior to your taking the course at a college level.
For this Udemy course, I used the Openstax Chemistry textbook which is also available in PDF format in the Resource Folder of the first lecture for this course. However, if you already have an old textbook, that may also work for you. Topics may be presented in somewhat different order, however.
