Science 10: Chemistry

Chemistry is the branch of science that deals with identifying of the substances of which matter is composed; investigating of their properties; observing the ways in which they interact, combine, and change; and using these processes to form new substances. The course is designed to expose students to the basic concepts of chemistry, but also to give them a solid, interdisciplinary foundation upon which further scientific education can be firmly built. Honors chemistry covers the same basic material as the standard chemistry section, but presents assessments in a more challenging format.
