Course title

General Chemistry


Algebra 1, Geometry

Course description

Acellus General Chemistry provides students with an introduction to the fundamentals of chemistry. Students build data analysis, critical thinking, and science communication skills while exploring various forms of matter, the composition of the atom, and organization of the periodic table. They will learn about properties of matter and use patterns to predict the behavior of atoms undergoing chemical reactions. They will understand chemical bonding and other interactions between atoms and molecules. They will explore the laws of conservation of mass and energy through calculations, including stoichiometry and calorimetry. Acellus Chemistry is taught by Nicole Lyssy. Students should take this course concurrently with, or after taking, Algebra II or Integrated Math III. Students will discuss basic laboratory principles including various scientific models, lab equipment, lab safety, and the fundamentals of designing a scientific experiment. Students will also learn how to properly collect, analyze, measure, and report data.
