This course utilizes the principles of chemistry to help explain the physical world around us. Emphasis is on developing effective problem-solving skills, gaining an understanding of fundamental chemistry concepts, and effectively communicating scientific information. Students study the basic principles of matter including measurements, atomic theory, bonding, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, acids and bases, solutions, and thermochemistry. The laboratory program challenges students to think analytically, make observations, draw logical conclusions, and communicate in writing. Technology is incorporated throughout the summer through virtual laboratories, topic presentations, and a project involving the animation of a chemical reaction.
