Chemistry Grades 11-12 Print Credit Recovery
Chemistry is the central science, as it focuses on the fundamental particles that make up everything around us. In this course, students will learn the basics of atomic structure and the periodic nature of the elements and the periodical table; how atoms interact to form compounds and react in predictable ways; how chemists count and represent quantities of atoms; the basics of thermochemistry and thermodynamics; acid-base chemistry; and nuclear chemistry. Students will explore these topics both in theory and in mathematical terms and gain a better understand of the world around them.
This study material is designed to provide students with an understanding of the structure, properties, and reactions of matter and the conversion to energy, as well as applications of these principles.
After reading the required text and completing the exercises found in the Study Guide, you will be able to:
· state the general purpose and method for the study of chemistry
· convert with scientific units of measurement.
· list chemical and physical properties of matter.
· describe the structure and components of atoms.
· differentiate between the Bohr model of an atom and the quantum mechanical model of an atom.
· use the periodic chart to locate and compute important chemical information.
· recognize chemical names and formulas.
· differentiate between types of chemical bonds.
· manipulate chemical equations.
· list and categorize types of chemical reactions.
· list common chemical and physical properties of solids, liquids and gases.
· describe the behavior of solutions and ions.
· describe the components of our atmosphere.
· compare and contrast sources of energy
· discuss issues of environmental pollution.
· describe the four major biomolecules
