Accepted as a l credit for high school, This course focuses on the standard topics of chemistry, including but not limited to: periodic table and trends, stoichiometry, orbitals, electron configuration, conversions, chemistry laws, atomic structure.
Students will receive semester grades based on participation in class discussions, projects, quizzes and tests. Please note that chemistry lecture is 50% of the chemistry grade. Labs make up the other 50%. A lab course is offered on Thursdays at SHEEP, or you may supplement with labs from home. If you are working on labs at home, students will need to bring in lab reports twice a year. These will be checked for completion by me, but not graded by me.
