Our chemistry course is designed to give you a solid foundation in chemistry, in order to prepare you for a college-level science classes or any field of study that will require problem solving and reasoning. Throughout this year we will explore how chemical processes impact our everyday life and the importance of these reactions in the world around us. Chemistry is everywhere! You literally eat, sleep and breathe chemistry everyday already. The course covers significant figures, classification of matter, the mole concept, stoichiometry, the periodic table, thermodynamics, kinetics, acids and bases, solutions, atomic structure, Lewis structures, the gas laws and equilibrium.
This class is 2 hours long and will last the full year. By combining both lecture, demos and weekly labs, we will create an interactive experience for everyone. The lab portion of the class will give you hands-on experience in handling basic lab equipment and chemicals along with strengthening your analytical skills. The scientific method and the experimental process will be used to help students explore God's amazing world at a level that you may not have considered before. At the very basic unit of creation, the atom, you can observe God's divine plan and wisdom. He truly is an awesome God! My hope for each student is that you may walk away with further awareness of God's perfect design for creation and be able to share how scientific study gives evidence to God's plan time after time.
