Course Syllabus(For Reference Only)

This course focuses on exploring the fundamental principles of chemistry which characterize theproperties of matter and how it reacts. Topics include measurement and calculations, matter, atoms, arrangement of electrons in an atom, periodic law, chemical bonding, chemical equations and reactions, stoichiometry, states of matter, gases, solution, acids and bases, kinetics, and organic chemistry. Each week, students spend time in a laboratory setting developing skills in measurement, observation, documentation, critical thinking and hypothesis formation. Students will be expected to record their observations, draw conclusions, and interpret data, and also work collaboratively and independently on projects that require deductive skills, computation, research andanalysis. A basic knowledge of the metric system, unit- analysis, algebra and variable isolation, spatial sense, square roots, fractions, decimals, graph development and graph analysis is expected.
