In Accelerated Chemistry, an emphasis is placed on the development of a structured-logical method to problem solving and a fundamental understanding of chemical principles. Students are introduced to atomic theory, gas laws, periodicity, molecular theory, acids, bases and salts, oxidation-reduction, solutions and chemical reactions. Integrated laboratory experiments are designed to reinforce chemistry concepts, to develop a wide range of laboratory skills, data analysis techniques and experimental reporting. This course prepares students for potential future enrollment in the AP Chemistry course.
Duration: 2 Semesters
Prerequisite: Concurrent enrollment in Honors Algebra 2 or Honors Pre-calculus
