Introducing Chemistry to the Learner

Udemy style 7This a learner’s guide for Chemistry Senior One. It is specifically prepared to meet the needs of the New Lower Secondary curriculum for Uganda.Chemistry is concerned with  the physical and chemical properties of substances and the interaction of energy and matter.

This learner’s guide tries to bring out how the study of Chemistry involves an investigation into chemical reactions and processes.

It seeks to help the learner explain and predict events at the atomic and molecular level. Through this guide, learners will understand the principles of Chemistry and how they relate to everyday life, nature and technology, and the significance of the wellbeing of man and the environment. chemistryThe guide further  allows  learners to work individually and with others in practical, field, and interactive activities that are related to theoretical concepts in the course.It is expected that learners will apply investigative and problem-solving skills, effectively communicate scientific information and appreciate the contribution that a study of chemistry makes to their understanding of the world.It places greater emphasis on the understanding and application of chemical concepts and principles and different learning styles and needs so that learners will develop skills that will be of long-term value in an increasingly technological world, rather than focusing on large quantities of factual information.

In addition, it encourages the use of various teaching and learning strategies while at the same time catering to multiple intelligences.

This Course consists of nine chapters including Chemistry and Society, Experimental Chemistry, States and changes of states of matter, Using materials, Temporary and permanent changes; Mixtures, Elements and compounds, Air, Water; and Rocks and Minerals.All the topics are well illustrated with images, graphics, and videos and clearly presented so all the learners find the course easy to understand.
