Prerequisite: Enrolled in or completed Algebra I.

“I really appreciated your (Dr. Eaton) teaching and consistent help, accessibility, and support throughout the year, and I really felt like I learned a lot. Not only that but I am very grateful to have taken your class because I felt like it was a great pre-requisite for chemistry at the next level. After taking both your class and advice last year, I decided to take general Chemistry at the local(ish) junior college…. I was very well prepared and received an A+ in the class, which actually turned out to be quite a bit of review. I then went on and received an A+ Chem 1B the next quarter. And now I am just starting my final quarter of General Chem with Chem1C. [This was my] first online class, first WTMA class, first real chemistry class…. [T]he content coverage quite beneficial in both Chem 1A and 1B, but the lab portion was helpful as well. [T]o be honest, after a semester of writing your full lab reports, the online lab reports we had to do felt a bit like a walk in the park…. I appreciated your class, and it has been a great help in my continued study of chemistry.” WTMA Student C.D. 2019-20
