Honors Chemistry

This course is designed as a feeder course for Advanced Placement Chemistry.  Since the great majority of students do not know if they have an aptitude or interest in chemistry, students are placed in the course based on the math course being taken.  Students are under no obligation to enroll in AP chemistry simply because they are in honors chemistry.  Students in honors chemistry will cover additional material and will be required to use higher order thinking skills than other first year chemistry students.
 
 
 
Who Should Plan to Continue into AP Chemistry?
  • Students planning to pursue pre-professional degrees in college:  pre-dental, pre-med, pre-pharmacy, and pre-vet students will find themselves at a distinct disadvantage without having completed AP chemistry
  • Students planning to pursue a pure science degree in college:  chemistry, physics, and some biology majors
  • Students planning to attend very large universities in which freshman courses often have several hundred students:  Finding oneself in a class of 200 without exceptional time management and study skills creates extreme stress for most students
  • Students who would like the opportunity to obtain credit for college level classes in a more nurturing environment.
