Course titleChemistry AB
This inquiry- and lab-based course is designed to support modern science curriculum and teaching practices. It robustly meets NGSS learning standards associated with high school chemistry along with additional concepts and standards typically included in a full-year high school chemistry course. Content topics include atoms and elements; chemical bonding; chemical reactions; quantitative chemistry; molecular-level forces; solutions; and energy and changes in matter.†
It also addresses additional concepts and standards typically included in a full-year high school chemistry course; including molar concentrations; acid-base reactions; advanced stoichiometry; gas laws; and organic compounds. †Each lesson includes one or more inquiry-based activities that can be performed online within the context of the lesson. In addition; the course includes a significant number of hands-on lab activities. Approximately 40% of student time in this course is devoted to true lab experiences; as defined by the†National Research Council (2006; p. 3).
