2 semesters, 1 credit
Required for juniors not taking 531 Practical Chemistry or 535 Honors Chemistry I
Open to seniors
Prerequisites: Student must be taking or have taken 430 Algebra II or permission of instructor of present science class.
Chemistry I serves as an introduction to chemistry and provides a thorough survey of all matter, with a focus on atomic theory, the periodic table, bonding, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, and the states of matter.
By the completion of this course, students will be able to…
- Understand the history of the atom and be able to describe the components of an atom.
- Determine how atoms form bonds with one another in both ionic and covalent compounds.
- Predict products for five different reaction types and analyze those reactions based on their energy and possible equilibrium.
- Use stoichiometry to calculate amounts of products created and reactant needed in a chemical reaction.
By the completion of this course, students will know…
- Scientific Terminology in reference to Matter
- Proper Measuring techniques
- Atomic History
- Atomic Structure
- Quantum Mechanical Model of the Atom
- Periodic Trends
- Ions and Ionic Compounds
- Covalent Bonding
- Chemical Nomenclature
- Chemical Quantities
- Chemical Reactions
- Gas Laws
