Course information for Chemistry
Chemistry will cover basic scientific information such as scientific method and scientific measurements. We will also discuss elements and compounds, types of changes and chemical and physical characteristics. We will learn about atoms and different ions and isotopes. Study of the periodic table is a large component of the course. This includes electon configuration, compound formation, balancing equations and types of reactions. We will also learn how to accomplish calculations of equations and formulas and how this information can be used to analyze data. Density, gas laws, rate of reaction, phase changes are all included in this course.
Course information for Earth Science
Earth/Space Science is the study of the physical and chemical characteristics of earth. Geology, meterology, astronomy, and the study of plate tectonics and land formation are all included.
