Throughout this course, students will discover the most intricate parts of Creation including the composition of matter and their interactions with one another as well as how they mathematically correspond to one another. Students will also gain a deeper understanding of these interactions by exploring real life applications. Along with discovering the content in many different ways, the students will be given the opportunity to interact with the material through laboratory experiments and simulations. This course has a lab component.
This course is a part of the honors track, and intentional focus will be on the required knowledge and critical thinking and analytical skills to prepare a student to be successful in future upper level and Advanced Placement® (AP®) courses.
*As part of the EVP program, this course will have a live class requirement once a week at a set time; please see the website for time choices.

Have you ever wondered why bread dough rises to make the perfect loaf of bread or what makes a hot air balloon float through the sky? These are just a few of the questions we will be answering in our Chemistry Honors course as we take a deeper look through the Chemistry content and find real life applications of these concepts! Throughout the course, we will be striving to make strong connections between what we are learning and the world around us!
We will be uncovering the mysteries of God’s Creation by analyzing and understanding the materials of the universe and the changes they undergo! As we dive a little deeper into an exploration of the world around us at the atomic level, you will be challenged and amazed to discover just how creative and marvelous God’s Creation is! He cares about His Creation, even down to the tiniest of atomic particles; so imagine how much He cares about each one of you, as well!
We’ll be challenged to think more critically as we explore all these things and more through our Honors Chemistry Course!
