Chemistry is the study of matter and the changes it can undergo. Among the concepts and areas covered in this course are scientific measurements, atomic structure, models of atoms (Thompson, Bohr and Quantum Mechanical), the periodic table, types of chemical bonding, chemical nomenclature, stoichiometry, the gas laws and states of matter, and types of chemical reactions. The course includes solution chemistry, acid and base theories, thermochemistry, oxidation and reduction chemistry, electrochemistry and equilibria. Also included is an introduction to organic and biochemistries.
The mathematics of chemistry and the integration of math and science is achieved by considerable problem solving practice. The chemistry of the elements on the periodic table is related to their electron structures and the basic scientific laws such as the law of conservation of matter to predict and determine chemical reaction and physical properties.
Students should be highly motivated and possess superior writing and analysis skills. Participation in this class will prepare students for the exam. Depending of the college or university, students may earn college credits by passing the Advanced Placement Examination prepared by the College Board.
