Unit 1 is an introduction into Chemistry.  We will look into how Chemistry is organized and learn some general ideas that will be used all year.  Chapter 5 in this unit will be a look at how to solve mathematical problems which is a central concept in Chemistry.  This is an important topic as practically all of the relationships we will study are described with a formula. 

The chapters for this unit are Chapters 1, 2 and 5  in our book.
