Chemistry is the study of matter – what stuff is made of, and how stuff turns into other stuff. Our study of chemistry is organized into 8 major units, each with essential questions to investigate. Throughout the year we will explore how we use our knowledge of chemistry to improve our lives. As you learn the chemistry content you will also be building your study skills, which will help you in any class or independent study you choose to take. This course fulfills standard college preparatory requirements.
The chapter references for ACP Chemistry (821) are for the textbook: World of Chemistry Zumdahl, Steven, et al. Illinois: McDougal Littell, 2007.
