Topics for this introductory study of Chemistry 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. This course builds on the skills developed in Physics and establishes a foundation for the study of Biology.
