Rubies, sugar, snowflakes: crystals are beauty, arranged in grid structures. This MOOC explains the basic building blocks of crystals, their symmetrical structure and introduces free software for crystal structure exploring.
Concepts in Nanotechnology is a six-week introduction to nanotechnology. You will learn what nanotechnology is and what it means for something to be a nanomaterial. You will also learn about the applications and commercial products that use nanotechnology.
A course that offers a scientific framework for understanding food and its impact on health and society from past to present.
This introductory physical chemistry course examines the connections between molecular properties and the behavior of macroscopic chemical systems.
Discover a world built by atoms, shaped by molecules and kept running with chemical reactions!
Learn about novel sensing tools that make use of nanotechnology to screen, detect and monitor various events in personal or professional life. Together, we will lay the groundwork for infinite innovative applications, starting from diagnosis and treatments of diseases, continuing with quality control of goods and environmental aspects, and ending with monitoring security issues.
This is an introductory course for students with limited background in chemistry; chemical problem solving will be emphasized with the goal of preparing students for further study in chemistry.
El MOOC contiene la teoría necesaria para resolver problemas prácticos relacionados con la Química Analítica.
Nanotechnology is an emerging area that engages almost every technical discipline – from chemistry to computer science – in the study and application of extremely tiny materials. This short course allows any technically savvy person to go one layer beyond the surface of this broad topic to see the real substance behind the very small.
This course is the second semester of the two semester sequence, Chemistry Concept Development and Application. This course will cover the topics of a typical second semester General Chemistry course at most colleges and universities. We will use the Chemistry Concept Development Study approach, developed and used in our courses at Rice and used in Part I of this course.
Chemistry is one of the central physical sciences. As a Chemistry Major, you will explore matter at its most basic—as a collection of atoms.
To earn the equivalent of a minor in Chemistry, you must complete four broad introductory-level courses as well as two chemistry electives of your choice.
This is a general chemistry course for college freshmen who are majoring in science, medicine or engineering.
3.091x explains chemical principles by examination of the properties of materials.
Chemistry is an integral part of our lives and the world we live in. Chemistry explains the world around us. Are you a college student intimidated by a chemistry course? Do you need a head start in exploring chemistry in order to be prepared for general chemistry courses? In this pre-college course, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of chemistry.
This course introduces students to elements of science behind cooking, cuisine preparation and the enjoyment of food. The ultimate goal is to help students recognize the importance of scientific principles being applied in everyday life, so that they will appreciate and be able to apply some of these principles in their future cooking practice, including the manipulation of human perception.
This course will focus on the theory, design and operation of commercial nuclear power reactors. The course will also touch on contemporary issues regarding nuclear power generation including: the nuclear fuel cycle, the economics of nuclear power, and nuclear non-proliferation.
If chemistry is the science of stuff, then analytical chemistry answers the question: what is it? And how much of it do you have? This advanced chemistry course covers the basics of quantitative analysis and analytical chemistry in a one semester format.
This chemistry survey is designed to introduce students to the world of chemistry. We will study chemistry from the ground up, learning the basics of the atom and its behavior. We will use this knowledge to understand the chemical properties of matter and the changes and reactions that take place in all types of matter.
We will cover a wide-ranging field of topics, learning everything from the equation that made Einstein famous to why you can’t replace a dead car battery with a household battery.
