Learning chemistry means gaining an understanding of the properties, composition, and structure of matter, the changes that alter the identity of substances, and the energy changes that take place during such transformations. Students explore the nature of the physical world, the problems facing a technological society, and the philosophy, methods, and limitations of science.
