Chemistry

Chemistry is the study of matter and its properties. Students will investigate and quantitatively analyze the chemical and physical behavior of matter while learning how to make careful observations, seek out regularities and attempt to provide explanations for observed behavior. Topics include: physical and mathematical modeling, atomic structure and periodicity, chemical bonding and nomenclature, quantitative analysis of chemical reactions, kinetic molecular theory, solution chemistry, equilibrium, acid base chemistry, organic chemistry and nuclear chemistry.
