Class time: 8:30 – 9:50

Pre-requisites: 10-12th grade; Algebra 1 and Physical Science (both required) and Biology (recommended).

Required supplies: Apologia Exploring Creation with Chemistry 2nd Edition, a 3-ring binder, pencil or pen, colored pencils, Scientific calculator (TI-30X is recommended; students may not use their phones as calculators)

Course Description

The lab class will cover the textbook concepts through labs, quizzes, worksheets, and 2 major projects. One project is due before Christmas Break, and the other is due before Spring Break. Projects are to be turned in on due date even if student is absent. Class time is allocated to assist with explanation of topics that students find difficult to understand from the textbook. The Chemistry Lab grade is based on lab exercises/experiments, lab reports, projects, quizzes/summary assignments, and participation. This grade comprises 50% of the overall Chemistry grade. Tests, study guides, and on-your-own questions are graded by the parent are used for the remaining 50% of the Chemistry grade. Absences are excused only with an email from parent within 24 hours of missed class. Late assignments drop 1 letter grade; no late assignments accepted after 1 week.

Topics will include unit conversions, stoichiometry, atomic structure, the periodic table, balancing chemical equations, gas laws, acid/base reactions, chemical bonds, and thermodynamics.
