Honors Chemistry

In PreAP Chemistry, students conduct field and laboratory investigations, use scientific methods during investigations, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem-solving. Students study a variety of topics that include the following: characteristics of matter; energy transformations during physical and chemical changes; atomic structure; periodic table of elements; behavior of gases; bonding; nuclear fusion and nuclear fission; oxidation-reduction reactions; chemical equations; solutes; properties of solutions; acids and bases; molar relationships; and chemical reactions. Students will investigate how chemistry is an integral part of our daily lives. Students will be expected to perform on an advanced level in preparation for further upper-level science courses.
