This fast-paced and exciting Chemistry Course covers matter, change of state, atoms and the periodic table, chemical bonding and polar molecules, chemical reactions, solutions, and acids/bases.
Each class includes a hands-on activity or lab to demonstrate and reinforce concepts. This class, coupled with Introductory Physics, meets and exceeds Core Curriculum 8th grade Science. Chemistry comes alive as we measure and mix, record reactions, and contemplate the results of our many experiments! With our live online meeting platform, students can watch Ms. Makayla demonstrate lab techniques during class, ask questions, and, later, show their own experiment results with their online colleagues. Students will learn valuable character traits that lead to success as they weekly study famous chemists, including Linus Pauling (a pioneer in atomic structure and quantum research), Amadeo Avogadro (famous for the “mole”), and Dmitri Mendeleev (founder of the periodic table). This course is designed to whet a student’s appetite for physical science, learning chemistry fundamentals, completing cool experiments, and exploring this dynamic subject as a possible career.
