Will Coursera certifications counteract the coursework deficiencies in my transcript when applying to graduate programs in Chemistry?

I am majoring in political science and I will graduate next Spring, but I am looking to get into a Masters of Chemistry program. I found a few courses on Coursera that offer certifications for the courses taken. I have been enrolled in a intro to chemistry course via Duke University. I want to get up-to-speed with basic chemistry and mathematics, and so I have decided to pursue this route. I am taking Pre-Calculus this summer, but I will also take an EdX course that offers a certificate for Calculus I.

My question is, how favorably will grad schools look at this? I have certain financial/time constraints that are working against me (which is also why I am deciding on taking Coursera courses rather than courses on campus) and I'd ideally like to be in a graduate program in Chemistry in Fall of 2020. Taking these courses on Coursera are really one of my best options at the moment, and I want to make sure that my efforts will not go to waste. Any advice would be appreciated.

I suck at C/P and kaplan books are NOT helping

I am a nontrad and it's been 5-6 years since I've taken C/P courses... i've been trying to read through the kaplan books and the P/S khan academy documents, but I haven't been able to retain ANYTHING. Recently, I've been seeing posts about these free online courses on coursera and I brushed it off at first, but I am on the verge of shooting myself so I checked it out. Decided to enroll into these courses and for the first time since quarantine, I'm actually kind of excited to learn! You can get through a whole module in 1-3 days. I think I saw a biochem course as well :) I hope this might be of some help to anyone that's having trouble studying right now\~
