Course Description

Chemistry is the study of substances that make up our world, changes in these substances, and the energy needed to bring about these changes.  This course gives a broad overview in which students analyze reactions in natural and man-made energy systems, the properties of materials in relation to their structures, and the atomic and nuclear structure of matter.  The theoretical and experimental nature of science is emphasized through research in printed material and in the laboratory.  Mathematical concepts provide a basis for many chemistry concepts.
