Chemistry

Monday, June 11 - Monday, July 16
Semester 1 --- 8:15 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
Semester 2 --- 10:45 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

No classes on July 3 and 4

Topics for this class include atomic structure, electron arrangement in atoms, periodic table, properties of gases, liquids and solids, acids and bases, nuclear and organic chemistry. Using inquiry to develop understanding, students will develop good methods of problem solving and proper laboratory techniques. Students will acquire understanding of scientific concepts, knowledge of scientific facts and proficiency in scientific process skills. Computer simulations and traditional laboratory techniques are used to obtain, organize and analyze data. Conclusions are developed using both quantitative and qualitative information. Come join in the chemistry fun - the mole the merrier!
