Chemistry

This is a first year chemistry class designed for students who are interested in the study of general chemistry. Students cultivate their understanding of chemistry through inquiry-based investigations, as they explore topics such as: atomic structure, intermolecular forces and bonding, chemical reactions,This course will include a mathematically oriented curriculum that prepares students for a college chemistry course. This course satisfies one of the three lab science courses required for graduation

AP Chemistry
This is a second year chemistry class, designed to be the equivalent of a first year college chemistry class. The AP Chemistry course provides students with a college-level foundation to support future advanced course work in chemistry. Students cultivate their understanding of chemistry through inquiry-based investigations, as they explore topics such as: atomic structure, intermolecular forces and bonding, chemical reactions, kinetics, thermodynamics, and equilibrium. Student will be required to take the AP Chemistry exam the first week in May
Honors Freshman Science                 Chemistry
This course is a one semester (½ credit) course designed for students who are interested in the study chemistry. Students will gain a college-level foundation to support future advanced course work in chemistry. Students will gain an understanding of chemistry through inquiry-based investigations, as they explore topics such as: atomic structure, chemical reactions, intermolecular forces and bonding. This course satisfies 1/2 of the three lab science courses required for graduation. The second ½ credit will be Honors Freshman Science Biology
