The Secret Life of Matter: Foundation Chemistry



Full course description

Chemistry is known as 'the central science' and most, if not all, science-based degrees require some understanding of chemistry — even if it's not explicitly taught as a subject.

Students planning on enrolling in any science or health-based degrees are expected to have chemistry as their ‘assumed knowledge’.

This online course aims to provide students with the background knowledge and skills to engage with scientific concepts in their foundation studies programs.

Topics covered include:

  • Elements and compounds
  • Atoms and molecules
  • Chemical reactions
  • Chemical calculations, including using scientific calculators

This course is appropriate for students wishing to enrol in undergraduate or foundation-level programs at the University of Newcastle.
