Course title



Algebra I

Course description

Chemistry (comprehensive; honors ? 1 credit): The high school chemistry course

isa two-segment study of the foundations of chemistry; building on the concepts and scientific thinking

laid in middle school science. Students use scientific inquiry and higher-order problem solving as they

explore the composition; properties; and changes of matter and their applications through interactive

simulations; engineering solutions; and virtual and hands-on experiences. Scientific inquiry; research;

experimental procedures; data collection and analysis; and making inferences are an integral part of the

learning experience. In addition; technology; engineering; and mathematics (STEM) concepts are

integrated throughout the course. Through phenomenon-based learning; students will be able to

demonstrate a vast understanding of the importance of chemistry in the world; enabling them to apply

these principles to their everyday lives and our global society. Grades 10-12. Prerequisite: Successful

completion of Algebra I with a letter grade of C or higher; or B or higher for Chem. I Honors. (KS
