This course is designed to align with the standards for the Keystone exam in Chemistry. In this course, students will discover what chemistry is and how it is used and found all around us. The importance of the scientific method to solve real world problems will be investigated. Knowledge will be gained in the following areas: types of matter, atomic structure, chemical periodicity, chemical formula writing and naming, chemical equations. This course will also stress the important relationship between math and science while studying measurement, metric system and stoichiometry. Students will use higher order thinking throughout the entire course. An algebra background is recommended because of the amount and type of math involved.
Chemistry is the study of matter and the changes that matter undergoes.
Matter can be classified as substances (elements or compounds) or mixtures (homogeneous or heterogeneous).
The position of an element on the periodic table is based on the number of protons and electrons for that element and allows chemists to see patterns in physical properties and chemical reactivity.
The visual model of the atom evolved as advances in technology were discovered.
Elements combine to form compounds.
Elements and compounds undergo chemical reactions to form new substances.
Defined measurement qualifiers known as units are needed to describe measurements in the physical world.
Units can be inter-converted via dimensional analysis.
Chemical equations are quantified via the unit known as the mole.
Theoretical yields can be computed for balanced, chemical equations.
