Chemistry A

Course Description:

This is the first course in a two-course sequence. This course is designed to meet both the Michigan Content Standards for Chemistry (Michigan Merit Curriculum) and the literacy standards of Common Core State Standards for Science and Technical Subjects. In this course, students will learn about the composition of matter, its chemical and physical properties, and how these change in chemical reactions. Other topics include measurement and calculations, the scientific method, chemical nomenclature, and energy changes that accompany physical and chemical changes. Each lesson includes a variety of sources of information, including text, videos, interactive simulations and self-check exercises. Students will have hands-on opportunities to conduct investigations at home. Practice exercises are included as well as graded assignments.
