Matter is the most tangible and observable of all scientific entities.  Chemistry is the study of matter—its composition and its behavior.  Chemistry explores and explains the relationship between matter and energy.  This course is designed to be a comprehensive study in the various facets and applications of Chemistry, with an emphasis on both concepts and problem solving.  Live class sessions will reinforce concepts found in the text and will focus largely on problem solving.  The class will meet for two one-hour sessions each week.

Students will be assigned reading and homework questions/problems to be completed independently.  Limited homework help will be offered during class sessions.  Students will also complete laboratory experiments independently, with thorough instruction provided prior to each assigned lab.

A few of the topics covered in this course:

               -Scientific measurement
               -Atomic structure
               -Periodic table and trends
               -Chemical bonding
               -Naming chemical formulas
               -Chemical reactions
               -Oxidation-reduction reactions
