Class Description

The 16 modules and their experiments in this course cover: Measurement, Units, and the Scientific Method; Atoms and Molecules; Atomic Structure; Molecular Structure; Polyatomic Ions and Molecular Geometry; Changes in Matter and Chemical Reactions; Describing Chemical Reactions; Stoichiometry; Acid-Base Chemistry; The Chemistry of Solutions; The Gas Phase; Energy, Heat, and Temperature; Thermodynamics; Kinetics; Chemical Equilibrium and Reduction-Oxidation Reactions.

There is a major experiment for each system.

This is not just a lecture class but very much hands on. Practical application is reinforced which makes this a class for any high school student not only interested in the subject but the application to real life as well.
