Honors Chemistry

Honors Chemistry

Chemistry 1 focuses on investigating the world of matter and energy through critical inquiry, problem solving, and research. Due to its enabling roles in fields from the life sciences and agriculture to engineering, materials science, and nanotechnology, chemistry is often regarded as the central science. This unique centrality is emphasized through class dialogue, activities, and laboratory experiments in which students observe and analyze chemical systems in order to bolster conceptual understanding. As fundamentals are developed, students continue to deepen their grasp of the molecular basis of macroscopic properties and phenomena and examine principles and questions of increasing complexity.
