  2. Honors Chemistry – Students may earn extra credit by completing challenging assignments and earn the distinction of Honors Chemistry. This is designed for academically gifted students and for those who have a desire to complete more rigorous work. The extra credit is available to all students even if they are not attempting Honors Chemistry.

  3. General Chemistry – This option is a less-intense track the math is a bit easier, a few topics are skipped, and the required assignments are easier. This is designed for students who struggle, or those with limited time or desire. This option is only available by parent request. Requests must be made before we start chapter 4.

Course Outline:

  • Topic 1: Matter and Change (Element and Compounds, Mixtures, Chemical Reactions)

  • Topic 2: Scientific Measurement (Accuracy and Precision, Metric System, Density)

  • Topic 3: Atomic Structure (History of Atomic Thought, Models of the Atom, Electrons in the Atom)

  • Topic 4: Periodic Table (Organization, Classification of Elements, Periodic Trends)
