Course Introduction

This advanced chemistry course covers all the basic topics of general chemistry. As an advanced course, it is suitable for grades 11-12 and would be best appreciated by a student who has already had a basic introduction to chemistry. This course includes approximately 25 hours of video instruction, extensive practice exercises, worksheets, several tests, supplemental readings, and answer keys.

Because of the depth of the material presented in this class, additional reading and practice exercises are required for comprehension. Students have three options for acquiring this material:

  • Provided free with this class on SchoolhouseTeachers.com is the text of Chemistry, an OpenStax* resource.
  • Chemistry from Zumdahl and Zumdahl (8th edition) may be available at your local library. If you choose to use this resource, the course will highlight which chapters align with the material being studied in each session.
  • If you would prefer to use Apologia’s Exploring Creation with Chemistry textbook and have access to that material, the course will highlight which chapters align with the material being studied in each session.

For assignments and tests in this course, you will need a copy of the periodic table and a calculator.

The course is made up of 25 sessions, each containing multiple video lectures. The video portion of each session is approximately 45-60 minutes long, however a few sessions include 60-90 minutes of video, and the first session contains approximately 2 hours of lectures.

Students who complete all lectures, worksheets, exercises, assignments, and tests may earn one full academic credit. As always, please check your own state’s academic requirements.

*Please note: the lectures in this Core Academy advanced chemistry course are presented from a Creationist science worldview. The OpenStax text book is a secular resource created by individuals not associated with Core Academy, SchoolhouseTeachers.com, or The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine and is made available through the Creative Commons license. The text is provided in order for students to have printable worksheets and exercises, not for its specific teachings on science.
