SPH3503H       Honors Chemistry (Pre-AP Chemistry)

(1 credit.  Open to grades 10-12. Prerequisites:  Biology I & Algebra I)

This course is an advanced high school chemistry course, which is concept, laboratory, and guided-inquiry based. Emphasis is on the use of readings, modellings, and scientific investigations to develop the understandings, inquiry process skills, and strategies to master the basic chemistry concepts that lead into the taking of AP Chemistry the next school year. These concepts include Chemical quantities and calculations, types of chemical reactions, periodic law, nomenclature, chemical bonding, gasses, solutions, acids & bases, energy, and equilibrium. The course is challenging and should be considered the first year of a successful two-year program ending with the taking of the AP Chemistry exam to earn a passing grade of a 3, 4, or 5.
