Advanced Chemistry - Honors Course

STEM | Science Elective
Grade: 11-12
Credits: 1

Students delve into the part of chemistry involving calculating amounts—how much solid is produced? How much heat is given off? Students learn to write chemical formulas and reactions, examine reactions of gases, analyze how fast reactions proceed and look at a special class of reactions that go forward and backward at the same time. Advanced Chemistry is the essential next step for those students who wish to take a Chemistry course in college for a career in medicine or another STEM field. This course, along with Chemistry 1, is a good preparation for the SAT II test in chemistry.


Note: Recommended preparation: Chemistry I with a grade of B or better and a willingness to work hard and dig deep. Algebra II and other ongoing preparation in mathematics are recommended.
