One-Semester Course (Fall and Spring). 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.
Prerequisite: Algebra I
- The Home Scientist CK01B Standard Home School Chemistry Laboratory Kit
- A high school chemistry textbook is highly recommended for reference. We recommend Suchoki, John. Conceptual Chemistry, 5th ed. Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall, 2013. ISBN 9780321804419
Class meets once per week for 50-55 minutes.
Class cap: 15 students.
Designed for grades 9-12.
Students in grades 9-12 may be awarded .5 Natural Science Lab credit upon completion of this course.
*A student will earn a full laboratory science credit if taking a non-lab science and the corresponding lab together. For example, if a student takes Biology and one-semester of Biology lab, she will earn 1.5 laboratory science credits.
