ESSENTIAL HIGH SCHOOL CHEMISTRY PRINCIPLES*
Entering Grades 9-12 – This course is designed to preview some of the main topics in high school chemistry. Students will learn about dimensional analysis, the periodic table, stoichiometry and gas laws. The class will investigate the structures and properties of matter, chemical reactions, and the energy and forces that drive these interactions. Students will be expected to use algebra to explain these ideas. Students will be challenged to solve problems and answer complex questions in pairs and group work. This is not a lab class, but students will complete activities and projects such as building their own periodic table and creating molecule models to promote understanding and retention.
