Course Description (For Lab Rats Level)

The Chemistry curriculum is designed to continue student investigations of the physical sciences that began in grades K-8 and provide students the necessary skills to be proficient in chemistry. This curriculum includes more abstract concepts such as the structure of atoms, structure and properties of matter, and the conservation and interaction of energy and matter. Students investigate chemistry concepts through experience in laboratories and field work using the processes of inquiry.  Chemistry students use the periodic table to help with the identification of elements with particular properties, recognize patterns that lead to explain chemical reactivity and bond formation. They use the IUPAC nomenclature in order to predict chemical names for ionic (binary and ternary), acidic, and inorganic covalent compounds, and conduct experiments to manipulate factors that affect chemical reactions.  Course concepts include matter, energy, atoms, moles, ionic and covalent bonds, chemical equations, chemical reactions, causes of change, states of matter, intermolecular forces, gases, solutions, chemical equilibrium, acids and bases, reaction rates, oxidation and reduction, electrochemistry, nuclear, carbon, organic, and biological chemistry.
