Chemistry is a college preparatory course that is intended to acquaint students with the major concepts of Chemistry. This is a lab-oriented course and deals with many quantitative measurements. This course requires the use of mathematics to solve problems on a regular basis. A fundamental understanding of algebra and the ability to apply basic algebraic concepts is necessary. The course will also allow students to use their critical thinking skills and investigate the science of chemistry through inquiry. In addition to “recipe” labs to learn concepts, students will be developing their own experiments to investigate.
