Chemistry (10th, 11th,) 1 Credit

This class includes all of the essential, and the core content expectations in the Michigan High School Content Expectations for chemistry. Chemistry is a course that will investigate matter, changes in matter, and the energy associated with these changes. Students will collect data in a laboratory setting using both qualitative and quantitative data collection methods. They will learn to interpret, display, and evaluate data using both mathematics and technology. The class will investigate atomic structure, properties of solutions, nomenclature of inorganic and organic compounds, properties of acids and bases, properties of gasses, and the study of nuclear chemistry. Daily instruction will include many inquiry teaching methods and use of current technology. Furthermore, because this class includes both the essential and the core content expectations for chemistry it is more rigorous than the Essentials of Chemistry course.
