Chemistry (lab)

Dr. Sara Zacher

Prereq: Algebra I

Co-requisite: Algebra II

Chemistry is everywhere, and this course explores both the chemistry concepts underlying reactions and life itself as well as teaching thinking skills to begin to think like a scientist. This rigorous course covers a wide range of chemistry topics, including atomic theory and bonding, phases of matter, and thermodynamics in the first semester; and solutions, acids and bases, stoichiometry, and chemical reactions in the second semester; with each topic explored using hands-on labs. We will make things stink, change color, and go boom!
