Using the Course
We've designed this course so that it's easy to navigate for students who are struggling with chemistry concepts. Check out the two most popular options to decide which best fits your needs:
- Start at the beginning with the history of chemistry, and advance through the chapters and lessons in order until you reach the last lesson on DNA replication. Lessons follow a natural progression, making this option simple to follow along.
- Identify chemistry topics you find most difficult, and skip the material you already know. If you only need to study nuclear chemistry, you can go straight to that chapter. Though some lessons might refer to topics in previous lessons, each one is designed to stand alone to make sure you get all of the info you need to understand a topic.
Simply follow these steps, and you'll be on your way to mastering chemistry!
- Start at the beginning or find the chapter subjects or lesson topics you need to learn about.
- Open a lesson and play the video.
- Test your understanding of the material using the short lesson quizzes and chapter exams.
- Ask our expert instructors questions if you need extra help learning a chemistry concept.
- Go to the next lesson in the chapter to continue learning.
- See your course progress on the chemistry remedial course page.
