Yippee! Ed2Go has an Introduction to Chemistry course! Even with total quality applications and managing customer service, I will enroll in this because I’ve always wanted to take chemistry. I made the mistake of skipping it to take physics in high school because I wanted to sit my senior class instead of juniors. I ended up failing physics miserably. However, since then I have taken linear algebra and three calculus classes adequately preparing me for chemistry. I will supplement the online class with Chemistry Essentials for Dummies and reviewing all of the course’s links because I will absorb everything like a sponge! The Dummies series have a lot of chemistry books which I will pour over. I don’t want to simply learn the basics. I want to be able to return to UDC and take a couple of courses. Right now I want to expand my career opportunities. Science and technology offer a wide array of quality jobs. Besides, with the high start-up businesses, mastering science gives me a working knowledge of their products. I am very big on conducting due diligence and knowing that I can proficiently read the science materials will help the agency. However, I will not stop at chemistry but continue onto physics and statistics.
I might even weave in some physics because it is closely connected to calculus and statistics. I think that taking the online chemistry serves as the launching pad towards returning to physics because I am in science. This entire year I’ve been thinking about jumping back into science because I’ve been away too long. 2010 was the last time that I took a math class; and, since, I am working in quality metrics so beefing up my math and science are necessary. Thus far, I’ve enrolled in total quality fundamentals to relearn statistical tools. This new analyst job is fertile ground to delve deeper into these two disciplines. These science classes will not compete with my filmmaking and project management because science intersects with these two fields. I know that it is nerdy to be giddy over an introductory chemistry class but hey I love learning more.
