Chemistry

 

Chemistry is the study of matter and energy and the interactions between them. Topics include characteristics of matter, use of the Periodic Table, development of atomic theory and chemical bonding, chemical stoichiometry, gas laws, solution chemistry, thermochemistry, and nuclear chemistry. Students will investigate how chemistry is an integral part of our daily lives. The student will conduct laboratory and field investigations using safe, environmentally appropriate, and ethical practices for at least for 40% of instructional time. End of Course (EOC) tested.

Grade Placement:10-12 
Prerequisites: Biology or IPC and Algebra 1

 

 

PAP Chemistry

Pre-Advanced Placement (PAP) Chemistry is an advanced course recommended for students with a strong interest in science and strong study skills. This course takes the concepts of chemistry and expands them to include an in-depth study of reaction rates, oxidation-reduction, and net ionic equations in order to prepare students for advanced placement and International Baccalaureate study as well as other upper level science courses.. Emphasis is placed on independent lab skills and critical thinking skills. End of Course (EOC) tested.

Grade Placement: 10-11
Required Prerequisite: Algebra I and concurrent enrollment in a second year of math

 

AP Chemistry

The AP Chemistry course is designed to be the equivalent of the general chemistry course usually taken during the first college year. Topics such as the structure of matter, kinetic theory of gases, chemical equilibria, chemical kinetics, and the basic concepts of thermodynamics are presented in considerable depth. The curriculum is outlined by The College Board. This course is designed for the college-bound or above average student in Chemistry. Students are encouraged to take the Advanced Placement test for college placement and/or credit at the completion of the course. End of Course (EOC) tested.

Grade Placement: 11 or 12 
Prerequisite: Chemistry, Algebra II or concurrent enrollment
