  • Science can be broken into social science (social studies, political science, psychology) and natural science. This slides shows some of the diverse areas of natural science.
  • Your experience of learning chemistry maybe somewhat like looking at this picture that tests your perspective. You see either two faces looking at each other or a vase . Sometimes your perception may be that chemistry is challenging, while a short time later your attitude may be that chemistry is easy and fun. You walk into this class having heard stories about it from your friends, siblings or parents that may be similar or different to what you actually experience in the class. They may have had a poor experience in high school chemistry and make you nervous about the class: or they may have had a fantastic experience and you are thrilled to be in my chemistry class.

  • This image looks 3-D and appears to waver across the page.
  • The five areas of chemistry listed: organic, inorganic, analytical, physical and biochemistry are the main areas of chemistry. Many people work as chemist in related fields – law, pharmaceutical, medical, agricultural, sales.
