Chemistry/Honors is designed to provide in-depth knowledge of the fundamental principles of Chemistry. Topics include atomic structure and modern atomic theory, bonding and molecules, the periodic table, chemical reactions, solutions, gases, thermodynamics, reaction rates, chemical equilibrium, and acid-base chemistry. Students should be able to solve multi-step problems and collect and analyze data mathematically, graphically, and verbally. In this course, independent work is required; significant out-of-class reading, homework, and study time is expected. Assessment is based on tests and quizzes, laboratory reports, and problem sets.
