Foundations of Chemistry

Foundations of Chemistry is a one-semester introduction to chemistry intended to cover all of the chemistry proficiency standards required for graduation from CHRHS.  The major units of study are: nuclear chemistry, chemical bonding, chemical composition, chemical reactions, and chemical energy. Class time will be spent in a mix of experiments, demonstrations, discussions, problem-solving (both “paper” and hands-on”), and practicing skills.  This course does not meet the requirements of a “lab science credit” as defined by colleges and universities.
