Chemistry is the study of matter, its composition, and behavior. The Chemistry course is designed to be a general introduction to the discipline and provides an overview of concepts and applications. Topics for the course include Atomic Structure, Periodic Table and Trends, Chemical Bonding, Naming Chemical Formulas, Chemical Reactions, and Stoichiometry.

The class will meet for two hours each week. Class sessions will reinforce concepts found in the text and focus on problem-solving. Each class, students will be assigned reading and homework questions which will be completed independently. Part of each class will be set aside to answer student questions and to clarify concepts. The Chemistry course contains a laboratory component which gives the students the opportunity to investigate in more detail the topics discussed in the course. This course will include a combination of Demonstration Labs, Virtual Labs, and Labs performed by students at home. More details on the needed lab kit will be available soon.
