Welcome to Chemistry!

COURSE DESCRIPTION

CHEMISTRY
Grade level
: 10-12
Prerequisite: Algebra I with a grade of C or better
Length: one year

Chemistry is an inquiry-based course designed to cover the basic concepts of general chemistry leading to the understanding of the composition, properties, and changes in matter.  This will be accomplished using a thematic, guided inquiry approach. Introductory principles covered in this course will include matter, atomic structure, bonding, molecular structure and properties, phase changes, behavior of gases, stoichiometry, solution chemistry, acids and bases, thermodynamics, reversible reactions, and chemical equilibrium. Laboratory and general activities that combine conceptual understanding with problem solving are integrated into this course. A large part of the course requires a comprehensive understanding of Algebra.

Note: Students that have successfully completed Chemistry may want to also take Advanced Chemistry, as it is articulated with Chippewa Valley Technical College General Chemistry 134, and earn 4 college credits. If you have the slightest thought that you may sign up for Advanced Chemistry, be sure to keep the your Chemistry notebook(s). We will continue to use it as a study tool in Advanced Chemistry.
