This course helps students understand the basic concepts of the subjects of chemistry, biology and physics.
It focuses on atoms, periodic properties, chemical bonds, chemical reactions, and organic chemistry.
Students will recognize motion, and laws of motion, momentum, work, potential energy and kinetic energy,
energy conservation, electricity and electromagnetic field.
Course also concentrates on biological science, including an introduction to the disciplines of biochemistry,
cell organization and genetics. Students will develop a basic understanding of the biological macromolecules
(proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids) their structure and function,
