Course Description: We will be studying God's creation at the atomic level and discovering how marvelous it is. This is a rigorous, college-prep Chemistry course. Over both semesters, we will cover a wide range of topics, including Structure of Matter, States of Matter, Chemical Reactions, Stoichiometry, Equilibrium, and Thermochemistry. We will also consider how Chemistry is important in our day-to-day life.

  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 the first day of classes.  

Course Outline:

  • Topic 1:  Chemical Quantities (The Mole Conversions between Mass, Volume, and Count

  • Percent Composition and Chemical Formulas)

  • Topic 2:  Chemical Reaction (The Five Types of Chemical Reactions, Reactions in Aqueous Solutions)

  • Topic 3:  Stoichiometry (The Arithmetic of Chemical Equations, Limiting Reagents, Percent Yield)

  • Topic 4:  States of Matter (Solids, Liquids, and Gases Changes of State The Gas Laws)

  • Topic 5:  Solutions (Water, Properties of Solution, Concentration of Solutions, Colligative Properties)

  • Topic 6:  Thermochemistry (The Flow of Energy, The Heat of Reactions and in Changing States)

  • Topic 7:  Reaction Rates and Equilibrium (Rates of Reactions, Reversible Reactions and Equilibrium, Entropy and Free Energy)

  • Topic 8:  Acids and Bases (Acid-Base Theories, Strength of Acids and Bases, Neutralization Reactions)

Course Materials and Technology:

1. Text: Chemistry, Wilbraham, Staley, Matta, Waterman (Prentice Hall, 2008) ISBN: 0-13-251210-6. (We recommend buying used. It can be purchased at http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0132512106/catholictreas-20.)

2. Computer with a microphone. (This is an interactive class microphones are mandatory.))

3. Scientific Calculator (I demo on a TI-30x iis)

4. Scanner or smartphone with Adobe Scan (or like) app that can scan multiple pages and save as a single PDF file.

Homework: Assignments include homework and a quiz with each chapter, unit tests, and a final exam. Most students will complete the weekly assignments in about 4 hours some students need more time. Most assignments are completed online some assignments will need to be hand-written, then scanned, and uploaded (as a PDF) for grading. Mrs. Dutton will be available to answer questions daily via the class discussion (forum). Mrs. Dutton will grade all assignments and give an overall grade for this course.
