This course extends and deepens the topics covered in chemistry. Areas of study will include the essential elements and objective of those in the regular chemistry course with greater depth and at a more accelerated rate.
This course takes a problem solving approach that reinforces basic concepts taught in chemistry. Topics include the structure of matter, kinetic theory of gases, chemical equilibrium, chemical kinetics, and basic concepts of thermodynamics. Laboratory work will include qualitative analysis, research studies, and special projects. Careers emphasized will include engineering and medicine. This course prepares students to take the Advanced Placement exam for college credit in chemistry.
Grade Placement: 11, 12
Prerequisite: Algebra II and Geometry
Physics deals with the material world and its phenomena. Included in the course are the closely related sciences of mechanics, heat, sound, and light. Mathematics is an integral part of physics.
