Chemistry 1 Unit 2: Matter and Energy


During this Unit, we will be studying Matter (Changes, Properties, Categories, Solutions, Gases, and Phase Changes) and Energy (Temperature and Heat). I have tried to put the Unit together with a decent flow, but it may seem a little random at times. As usual, ask me if you ever get confused. :)
