Chemistry introduces students to the scientific process and to scientific measurement techniques, including metric measurement conversions. Chemistry requires quantitative measurements and calculations when making observations or creating chemical reactions during experiments. Most measurements are made using the international system of units (SI Units) along with prefixes that relate to the size of the measurement. This course covers dimensional analysis, development of the modern atomic model, and the Periodic Table of Elements. Students will investigate the way chemicals react and how these reactions can be represented and calculated, how energy is important in chemical reactions and relationships, and the dynamics of the phases of matter. Solution chemistry allows students to develop expertise in calculating various measures of concentration and in understanding chemical equilibrium. Factors affecting how chemical reactions take place in solution then leads to an investigation of acids and bases. Oxidation-Reduction reactions, also known as redox reactions, are reactions that involve a transfer of electrons between elements during chemical reaction. Redox reactions and nuclear chemistry wrap up the course. Assessments for each individual lesson consist of multiple-choice exams. The mid-term and final exams consist of short-answer, problem-solving, or true/false questions.
