This course is a first-year high school course that provides you with a solid foundation in chemistry. This course prepares you for college-level work. The class covers the following subject matter :
Nomenclature, significant figures, units, classification, molar calculations, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, acids and bases, redox reactions, solutions, atomic structure, Additionally, it covers: Lewis structures, molecular geometry, gas laws, and equilibrium.
This course contains thirty-one experiments which can all be performed at home with household chemicals. The instructor will not be involved in any of the experiments. All experiments must be supervised by an adult, a parent or a teacher. Formal written lab reports will be required as part of your grading. This course requires the 3rd edition of Apologia’s Chemistry textbook set (textbook, test & solutions manual) – (Please note that other editions will not be compatible with the class).
