*NOTE: There is a minimum of 5 students required for this class to progress.

Prerequisites: Completion of Physical Science/IPC, Algebra 1, and Biology with grades of 80 or better. Chemistry is a demanding course of study that will require the student to take initiative in working for their own understanding.

Lecture Course Description: Algebra based chemistry covering significant figures, units, classification, mole concept, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, acids, bases, redox reactions, solutions, atomic structure, molecular geometry, gas laws and equilibrium. Students should be expected to work on assignments at home at least 6 hrs each week.

Lecture Required Materials:
Exploring Creation with Chemistry 3rd Edition ISBN 9781940110257
Solutions and Tests for Exploring Creation with Chemistry 3rd Edition ISBN 9781940110-26-4

Lab Course Description: Chemistry lab course will supplement the study of chemistry. The separate lab course allows for greater exploration of the chemistry concepts beyond the minimal level. Recommended for developing skills that will allow for better preparation for the college experience. Teacher generated lab manual will be used. Experiments will follow the scope and sequence of the Exploring Creation with Chemistry text. Labs will vary from simple introductory experiments to more complicated experiments.

Lab Required Materials: Lab coat or apron (plastic or rubberized), safety GOGGLES (glasses do NOT sufficiently cover the eye area). Each student will need their own goggles – for eye health, goggles will NOT be shared. Teacher generated lab manual.

Lecture course = 0.5 High school credit.
