Students take a quantum leap into the world of chemistry with an exploration of metrics, measurement, atoms, chemicals, and the way these building blocks react when manipulated. With a variety of required experiments, the course provides hands-on and computer-based lessons.
Let the mysteries of chemistry unfold for your student with this course designed to introduce them to the atoms, molecules, elements, and compounds. Students in grades 10–12 will explore metrics, measurement, equilibrium, chain reactions, organic compounds, and the chemist's toolbox with on and off-computer lessons and experiments. The course units include text-based lessons, on and off-computer exercises, special projects, learning games, quizzes, and tests that appeal to today's digital generation and help teachers to evaluate progress and mastery of the materials. Chemistry enriches the educational experience for Christian school students and sparks a passion for learning.
Throughout the course, students will explore the following topics:
- Estimation and Measurement
- Elements, Compounds, and Mixtures
- Gasses, Mass, and Moles
- The History of Chemistry
- Atomic and Molecular Structure
- Chemical Bonding and Stoichiometry
- Chemical Changes and Reactions
- Chemistry Tools
- Organic Chemistry and Hydrocarbons
Chemistry is a 1 credit course. Students may take either Chemistry or AP Chemistry.
