What are we studying?
Chemistry is the study of the composition and properties of matter. We will not only be looking at what matter is, but also investigate the ways that different types of matter interact, change, and combine with each other. One of the many goals of this course is to expose you to the fundamentals of chemistry so that you will be better prepared for collegiate level science classes.
Honors Chemistry is an in-depth laboratory course requiring extensive self-motivation and self-monitoring. By infusing concept mastery, critical thinking, problem solving, and laboratory experimentation strands; this course expands upon the facts, formulas and principles of chemistry. This course is geared toward explaining why chemistry happens using mathematical and laboratory skills.
