Course Description
Offered to Juniors and Seniors, Alternating with Anatomy and Physiology every other year.

Students choose this class either because they have an interest in it or because it is
prerequisite. Chemistry students almost exclusively continue to post-secondary institutions,
therefore we will treat this as a college preparatory course and as such, students will be given
more responsibility for their learning. The topics are more challenging than in general course
like Physical Science. The class can be fun when certain expectations are met.


Units of Study
-Matter and energy                             -Equations and Reactions
-Measurements and calculations                 -Stoichiometry
-Atomic Structure                               -Acids and Bases
-Electron Configurations                         -Reaction Energy and Kinetics
-Periodic Law                                   -Nuclear Chemistry
-Chemical Bonding                              -Organic Chemistry
-Formulas and Compounds                         -Biological Chemistry
