Session II

Eight-Meeting Classes

Chemistry through Experiments


Recommended Age Range


Colored fire. Elephant toothpaste. Mentos and Coke. What better way to learn chemistry than to perform experiments? You will not only learn how to perform the experiments, but also understand the chemistry of what exactly is happening to cause the phenomenon you see in Tiktoks and Youtube videos. Join us as I guide you through a new chemistry experiment every class, and help you learn to see the world like a chemist.

This class can equip you to succeed in a high school chemistry class, or give you a chance to apply what you've learned in a high school chemistry course. It's also a lot of fun.
Prerequisites: None!

The Instructor:

Matt has taught gifted students since 2016, both privately and through CTY. This summer, he taught Paradoxes and Infinities and Chemistry in Society. He has also been teaching SAT (185 points average improvement), ACT (7.1 points average improvement), competitive math, AP Calculus, AP Statistics, AP Chemistry, and AP Physics for years. He claims he can "teach anything", and challenges you to test this claim. Other classes he has taught include:

Spreadsheets are Cool

Why Things Freeze/Boil (spoiler, gravity mostly)

Cryptology (and Mathematical Cryptology)

Logic (and Mathematical Logic)

How to Adult (Finance)

How to Adult (Career)

Designing Competitive Math Problems

Game Theory

One-off Classes

Quantum Theory versus Quantum Myth

Can you be in two places at once? What about your atoms? Get a taste of the counterintuitive nature of quantum physics while we examine everything that is extremely small and fundamental to our universe.

The age range for this class is coming soon!

The Instructor:

Brendan is an upcoming Post-Baccalaureate student in Mathematics at Tufts University with a background in Philosophy of Science, Physics, and intercultural Religious studies. He began teaching as a History of Science tour guide in his Junior year of high school, and was a Teaching Assistant in both Physics and Philosophy during his undergraduate studies. He wrote his senior thesis, A History of Causality from Heraclitus to Hume, on the interconnected histories of philosophy and physical science up till the Early Modern period. He spent a year teaching high school Geometry and Precalculus, where he also coached the Math Team, Robotics Team, and Philosophy club. In his free time he enjoys hiking, appreciating deliciously weird coffee and tea flavors, studying languages, and reading math books on the beach.
