Why this works for general chemistry

A general chemistry course is challenging for students who lack the problem-solving and math skills needed to succeed. Students may find general chemistry abstract and it can be difficult to visualize chemical reactions happening on a molecular level.

Our General Chemistry Course is designed to teach students the fundamentals of chemistry, while equipping them with essential problem-solving and math skills. Students will learn intricate concepts and connect chemistry to the real world while retaining the fundamentals necessary to continue their STEM education.
