Chemistry for the Logic Stage

Full-year course. This course is designed to provide inquiry-based instruction tailored to logic-stage (middle school) students of chemistry.  Specific topics of exploration include the periodic table of elements, properties of matter and solutions, chemical reactions, acid-base chemistry, biochemistry, and the chemistry of industry.  Throughout each unit of study, we will implement and discuss key components of the scientific method. Many of the concepts we explore build on each other, making it essential for students to continually reflect on their understanding of the content.  Students will be expected to demonstrate connections through narrative summaries, complete independent and group assignments, collect and analyze data, and compose written scientific reports.

    "The instructor fueled my passion for chemistry. I really enjoyed all the topics and the way she taught them was absolutely perfect. The instructor really taught me so much and I cannot thank her enough for it. It was an honor to be her student and I hope to take the high school version of chemistry soon!"
