FROM THE TEACHER

Have you ever wondered why some batteries can be recharged but others can’t or why rust forms on certain metals when they get wet? We will learn the answers to these questions and more as we dig a little deeper through our Honors Chemistry Course!

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 amazed to discover just how creative and amazing 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!

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.
