Chemistry is intended to expose students to the designs and patterns in the world that God has created. In preceding years, students should have developed an understanding for the macroscopic properties of substances and been introduced to the microstructure of substances. This chemistry course will expand upon that knowledge, further develop the microstructure of substances, and teach the symbolic and mathematical world of formulas, equations, and symbols. The major concepts covered are measurement, atomic structure, chemical formulas and bonding, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, gases, chemical equilibrium, and organic chemistry. Students at this level should show development in their ability and understanding of scientific inquiry. Students will explore further into the world of chemistry with an exploration of metrics, measurement, atoms, chemicals, and the way these building blocks react when manipulated. This online course is designed to introduce them to the atoms, molecules, elements, and compounds.
The units contain experiments with Smart Science and projects that seek to develop a deeper conceptual meaning for the student and actively engage the student. The continued exposure of science concepts and scientific inquiry will serve to improve the student’s skill and understanding. Chemistry should be preceded by an Algebra I course and preceded or accompanied by an Algebra II course.
