    It's always fun to mix a few chemicals during lab!

    Accelerated Chemistry

     

    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 AP courses in Biology and Chemistry.
