It's always fun to mix a few chemicals during lab!
Chemistry is all about everything: life, death, molecular interactions. Substances are changed (petroleum). People create new stuff (Teflon). Materials are improved (plastics). Medicine depends on chemistry (chemotherapy). Accelerated Chemistry introduces the basic information needed to begin understanding, at the micro-level, how the universe works.
Topics central to the course are atomic and molecular structure, the elements, chemical equations, and the properties of matter. Lab work and math problem solving are stressed. The course prepares students for CIS (College in the Schools) courses in Biology and Chemistry.
