Foundation of Chemistry Part I - Periodic Table
What you'll learn
- Upon completion of this course, you will learn the key elements of the Periodic Table (the skeleton of Chemistry), as follows;
- You will learn the symbols of a few elements in the periodic table and the relative electrical charge of their subatomic particles.
- You will learn the Bohr's Model of a few atoms, so by using the principle, you should be able to describe the nuclear model of any other atom.
- You will learn the atomic mass, atomic number by using the Bohr Model.
- You will learn the characteristics of Metals, Non-Metals, explain the differences between metals and non-metals on the basis of their characteristic properties.
- At the end of each section, you will be provided with practice questions linked to the taught materials for better understanding of the content.
- The answers to the assignments will be provided in the following video.
- As long as you want to learn Chemistry and can have access to the Periodic Table and are familiar with the atomic symbols, this course works perfectly for you
Thank you for checking in Fundamental Chemistry Part I - the Periodic Table.
Who should take this course?
This course provides information about you the key concepts in the Periodic Table and element(s)' properties from given trends down the group or across the periods. Thereafter, by applying those concepts, you should be able to conduct analysis and predict the behaviour of the element(s) towards the other ones and in chemical reactions.
Please be advised that this course will not make you an expert in chemistry, but it helps you to get a better sense of the way certain matters in chemistry (i.e. chemical reactions) happen.
Why can Chemistry be challenging?
Many people chemistry difficult, and with good reasons. Chemistry is difficult if one does not have in-depth understanding of the basics. Chemistry is a multi-disciplinary subject in which integrating the basics, terminology, mathematics, and visualization required to make sense out of it. In light of this, the Periodic Table has been considered as the building block of the subject which knowing it can make huge difference in your chemistry world.
So, how can you learn this course effectively?
I suggest you doing the following:
While watching videos, you should take notes if needed.
Try to do the practice questions on your own and if there should there be any questions, you can leave a message in 'Q&A' part and I will try my best to reply as soon as I can.
When working on the practice questions, remember using the guidelines - provided as summary at the end of each part.
After completing the Exercises, watch the next video for the answers. You should watch the steps I take to do them and compare them with yours.
Last but not least, try to practice because as said 'Good Practice Makes you Perfect'!
Finally, if you should have any questions about this course/concept, you are welcome to send me message in here.
That was all for my introduction. Happy learning!
Who this course is for:
- High School/College Students/Students Preparing for GCSE/SAT/A-Level/AP/Norsk Videregående Skole
- This course is suitable for the students who are either beginners in chemistry, or have found the subject challenging and preparing for exam.
A Medical graduate (US), Mater's degree holder (Translational Medicine & Therapeutics/Drug Discovery - UK) - with main expertise in Cancer research Pathology, Pharmacology - and Research Analyst/Certified Evaluator (Canada) is here to help you through any question(s) related to Science/Biomedical/Healthcare related disciplines.
I have been teaching since 2009 (starting with SAT Chemistry) - and have conducted teaching sessions and lectures linked to Science, Biomedical and Medical subjects since then. I used to work as Adjunct Lecturer at Hunter College (NY), as well as Medical Educator at Newcastle University/NHS.
Additionally, I successfully completed Teaching Modules; Teaching and Learning in the Classroom (TLC) and Understanding Programs of Learning (UPL) at Newcastle University. I am a certified Tutor/Instructor - and have been teaching the following subjects for over than 10 years:
• Biology (SAT/AS/A2 Level) & Molecular Biology
• Chemistry (SAT, GCSE, AS, A1 Level)
• Clinical Biochemistry
• Clinical Immunology/Microbiology
