Grade: 10 - 12
Prerequisite: Academic Biology and Algebra I
Dual Enrollment option available through Penn Highlands Community College for four credits
Credit Value: 1.2
This course includes a study of matter with emphasis on the motions of electrons, protons, neutrons, ions, atoms and molecules. Periodic arrangement of the elements will be stressed along with the basic chemical processes. Topics covered will include: atomic theory, bonding, history and background of chemistry, chemical reactions, and interactions of matter and energy. Simple chemical calculations deal with percentage composition, percentage error, scientific notation, mole stoichiometry, and gas law problems. All the above material will be related to the importance and use of chemistry in the students’ daily life.
This is a laboratory course in which the student will have the opportunity to gain skills in using equipment and handling chemicals.
Grade: 11, 12
Prerequisite: Chemistry I (C or better)
Dual Enrollment option available through Mount Aloysius and Penn Highlands
Community College for four credits.
This course picks up where the student left off in Chemistry I. The course is intended for academic students planning further study in a science related field at the college level. Chemistry topics covered are more in depth of theory and more strenuous in mathematical expectations than Chemistry I. Topics covered will include: solutions, bonding, solubility, acids/bases, oxidation/reduction, thermochemistry, kinetics, and basic organic nomenclature using the IUPAC system. All the above material will be related to the importance and use of chemistry in the students’ daily life.
This is a laboratory course in which the student will have the opportunity to gain skill in using equipment and handling chemicals.
