All eight units for the Introductory Chemistry semester are bundled into one zip file at a discounted price. (Separately each unit is listed as up to $40.)
Unit I - "Properties of Matter" - explores the atomic and nuclear structure of matter and the relationship to chemical and physical properties; relates the cause and effect of chemical reactions in natural and manufactured systems; analyzes the properties of materials in relation to their chemical or physical structures, and evaluate uses of the materials based on their properties.
Unit II - "States of Matter" - investigates the cause and effect of chemical reactions in natural and manufactured systems; analyzes the properties of materials in relation to their chemical or physical structures and evaluate uses of the materials based on their properties, and explains conservation of mass and energy and explains interactions of energy with matter, including changes in state.
Unit III - "Atomic Structure" - explains the nature and properties of energy in its various forms, and the processes by which energy is exchanged and/or transformed; discusses the atomic and nuclear structure of matter and the relationship to chemical and physical properties; and explores the cause and effect of chemical reactions in natural and manufactured systems.
Unit IV - "The Periodic Table" - explores the history and the evolving understanding of the atom and how matter was/is classified; investigates the periodic table including elemental families, groups and periods in detail, and elemental reactivity.
Unit V - "Chemical Bonds" - investigates chemical properties that include valence electrons, electron orbitals, energy states, ionic & covalent bonding; writing and combining chemical formulas; metallic & non-metallic bonding; cations & anions.
Unit VI - "Chemical Reactions" - explores concepts including chemical equations, reactants, products, chemical formula, reaction equations, Law of Conservation of Mass, Antoine Lavoisier, balanced chemical equation, chemical reactions, coefficients, subscripts, moles (mol), Avogadro's Number, molar mass, atomic mass units (amu), calculating molar mass, molar mass conversions, mole ratio, chemical reactions, reaction types, synthesis, decomposition, single-replacement, double-replacement, combustion, reaction examples, electrolysis (and more).
Unit VII "Solutions, Acids & Bases" - concepts include dissolving, homogeneous mixtures, solutes, solvents, solid, liquid, gas, universal solvent, dissociation, dispersion, ionization, ionic compounds, sodium chloride, polar molecules, chemical change, physical change, neutral molecules, conductivity, freezing point, boiling point, magnesium chloride, ethyl alcohol, exothermic reaction, endothermic reaction, Heat of Fusion, liquid solutions, stirring, surface area, temperature, dissolving rate, solubility, solute, solvent, copper (II) sulfate, saturated, unsaturated, supersaturated, precipitate, polarity, polar, non-polar, "like dissolves like", soapy water, solubility concentration, % by volume, % by mass (and more).
Unit VIII "Nuclear Chemistry" - concepts include radioactivity, nuclear decay, isotope, carbon-14, nitrogen-14, radioisotope, Antoine Henri Becquerel, uranium, uranium glass, photographic plate, alpha particles, beta particles, gamma rays, protons, neutrons, electrons, helium nucleus, atomic number, mass number, alpha decay, uranium-238, thorium-234, lead, balanced nuclear equations, radiation penetration, radiation suits, beta decay, gamma decay, radiation effects, radiation exposure, radon gas, Geiger counters, half-life, radon-222, nuclear decay rates, radioactive dating, beta decay, carbon dating, potassium-40, rubidium-87, rock dating, artificial transmutation, Ernest Rutherford, transuranium elements (and more).
*Algebra I or higher is strongly recommended as a student pre-requisite for these units.
Each unit contains many files that include comprehensive PowerPoint lessons with up-to-date information and instructor slide sorter notes; graphics, short video links and a 20-question kahoot.it interactive quiz/review for each lesson. Supporting review programs with separate PDF files for printable color student guides; student outline note/guidelines for each PPT lesson; study guides/activities including webquest review activities for each unit; and many other activities for intro chemistry students. Webquests are used to review each unit or as an introduction to the unit. Assessments including quizzes and a unit test are also provided for each unit with answer keys.

The units are and have been very well received in that you can teach the subjects in detail right away. Programs are updated as needed and new materials are added as I go along teaching the subject (buyers will be notified when there are updated or new materials). Approximate teaching length is one semester or about five months.
