Course Description:

Welcome to Honors Chemistry! Honors Chemistry will be taught as a first-year college introduction to a chemistry course.  Prerequisites include successful completion of Geometry with a grade of C or better. It also requires concurrent enrollment in Algebra II and a recommendation from your current math/science teacher. It can be used to fill a UC/CSU requirement for a laboratory science course. Chemistry is a study of our world, looking at the atom and how it relates to other topics, taught using the Next Generation Science Standards.  This course will cover a wide range of topics.  For this course, the GPA is A=5, B=4, C=3.  As this is an accelerated course, I expect the students to put in the extra work and effort for the accelerated GPA.
