This is a full year honors course in chemistry for college bound students planning a career in science. It is designed to cover in-depth the following topics: matter and its structure, periodic properties; formula and equation writing; stoichiometry relationships; properties of solids, liquids and gases; solutions; ionization, and acid-bases, and salts. Basic laboratory skills in chemistry are developed through investigations with matter. Students in this class are encouraged to get involved in extra-curricular science related activities outside the classroom, such as designing, completing and presenting an individual experimental project, entering science related competitions or participating in science programs offered by colleges, universities and other science organizations.
