Michel’s Answer

If interested in getting the basics of chemistry down you can always go to free to use websites like Khanacademy. Once you start getting more of an understanding and want to learn past that level youtube has a lot of good channels like organic chemistry tutor or professor dave. Exposure to the subject matter will allow you to gain an understanding of chemistry.

Anna’s Answer

I would recommend Khan Academy. They are a free, online learning resource with very high quality videos. You can take a chemistry course there, or just look at a few videos about subjects you are interested in. Khan Academy can also be helpful for reviewing topics you are struggling with in class.

If you are interested in learning about jobs in chemistry, you could try talking to your teacher. They would probably know some local companies that employ chemistry, and could help you set up a job shadowing experience.

Houcine’s Answer

Dear Will,

I hope this message finds you well. Chemistry is a fascinating field that delves into the composition, structure, properties, and changes of matter. Here's a brief overview to help you get acquainted:

Basics of Chemistry:

Matter: Everything around us is made up of matter, which has mass and occupies space.
Elements: Fundamental substances that cannot be broken down further.
Atoms: Basic units of matter composed of a nucleus (protons and neutrons) and electrons.

The Periodic Table:

A structured arrangement of elements based on their atomic number and properties.
Columns share similar properties.

Chemical Bonding:

Ionic Bonding: Involves the transfer of electrons.
Covalent Bonding: Involves the sharing of electrons.

States of Matter:

Solid: Definite shape and volume.
Liquid: Definite volume but takes the shape of its container.
Gas: No definite shape or volume.

Chemical Reactions:

The process where substances transform into new ones.
Involves breaking and forming chemical bonds.

Acids and Bases:

Acids: Release hydrogen ions in water.

Bases: Release hydroxide ions.

If you'd like to dive deeper, there are excellent online resources, textbooks, and even interactive simulations that can enhance your understanding.

Happy learning!

Best regards,
Houcine
