Explore material changes in the natural world and human activities
KOE, Julian R.
Understand human beings, life, and the environment through chemistry
Knowledge of chemistry and its methods are crucial to understanding familiar everyday phenomena, such as washing things with soap, the processes necessary for life through substance circulation and metabolism in the natural world, and environmental problems such as global warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions. Chemistry is also essential for solving many problems and realizing a sustainable society. Students are expected to learn chemistry to correctly understand the relationships between material changes in the natural world and human activities for the effective utilization of material and social resources.
