Chemistry

9-12

Course Outline

​Chemistry is the study of the structure and composition of matter that makes up living things and their environment. Chemistry also deals with the study of the changes of matter and the mechanisms by which changes occur. This course is recommended for college-bound students. This class cover topics such as matter, chemical reactions, solutions, and nuclear chemistry. Virtual labs and/or simple at home labs are conducted for most chapters. Lab reports must be submitted, organizing data, and answering questions for the experiment.
