Discover a world built by atoms, shaped by molecules and kept running with chemical reactions! This subject is an introduction to the world of chemistry. You will learn about atoms, the building blocks of everything around us. You’ll learn about how these atoms are put together to make compounds, to make most of the materials that we use every day. We’ll have some fun looking at some common types chemical reactions and finally, we’ll use our knowledge of these chemical reactions along with a new way of quantifying the world in order to be able to make powerful predictions about quantitative chemistry.

Learn how to generate ideas at the interface between chemistry and biology. Chemistry and biology are traditionally taught as separate subjects at the high school level, where students memorize fundamental scientific principles that are universally accepted. However, at the university level and in industry, we learn that science is not as simple as we once thought. We are constantly confronted by questions about the unknown and required to use creative, integrated approaches to solve these problems.

Aprenderemos a identificar los tipos de enlace presentes en los compuestos químicos y a relacionar la estructura de éstos con sus propiedades. Los materiales que utilizamos diariamente y los objetos que nos rodean están formados por sustancias químicas cuyas propiedades, aplicaciones y transformaciones dependen del tipo de enlace que las caracteriza. El tipo de enlace condiciona la interacción entre las moléculas de un compuesto.
