Course Description: Chemistry is the study of matter and the changes it undergoes. A basic understanding of chemistry is central to all science—biology, physics, Earth science, ecology, and others. It is also central to our everyday lives. This high school chemistry course, while not exhaustive, is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in core chemistry concepts that will serve as a precursor to more advanced science courses in high school or college.
In this course, students will view chemistry lectures, participate in online discussions of the course material, and will practice the concepts covered via worksheets and various online tools that help to cement their understanding. Students will be evaluated through a combination of quizzes, homework assignments, and tests.
A textbook is not required for this class, however the textbook Glencoe Chemistry: Matter and Change ASIN: B014S2JAEC can be purchased as a reference. All notes and additional course material will be provided for an additional charge. The notes are fill-in-the-blank and are to be completed as students review the online lectures. The course material consists of all the worksheets and assignments the student will need for content mastery.
