Chemistry Lab

One-semester course with full-year option. This course will provide an in-depth exploration of chemistry phenomena through laboratory investigation. Students will conduct experiments related to basic chemistry topics, including ideal gas properties, principles and properties of chemical reactions, solubility and pH, and thermochemistry. Course content includes, but is not limited to studying and applying the experimental method, composing lab reports, engaging in peer review with classmates, and presenting lab results.

Please note: The fall and spring semesters of this lab cover different material. We recommend that students interested in science take both semesters. However, students may choose to register for the fall or spring semester only, depending on transcript needs.

Prerequisite: Enrolled in or completed Algebra I.
