Chemistry is intended to prepare students for college-level chemistry. The concepts and laws of chemistry are emphasized from a predominantly quantitative approach utilizing hands-on demonstrations, laboratory investigations, and online activities. The students should have a strong math and science foundation, as the integration of the two is greatly emphasized within this course.

An understanding of the principles of chemistry and the mental habits developed during the course will help students prepare for further study in fields of science, and develop a deeper appreciation of the world around them.

Prerequisite: Geometry (or concurrent)
