HS Course Offerings: Science
Chemistry: Advanced Studies, grade 121.0 credit, Elective
Usually taken after a comprehensive initial study of chemistry, Chemistry: Advanced Studies courses cover chemical properties and interactions in more detail. Advanced chemistry topics include organic chemistry, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, macromolecules, kinetic theory, and nuclear chemistry.
Students must have demonstrated a high degree of competency in mathematics, and must have the self-discipline to put in many hours each week for studies outside of class. Some skills that will be used are critical thinking, clear and logical expression of ideas orally and in writing, and problem solving. If not, teacher permission is required. This is both a college prep course and a Tech Prep course.
