My philosophy for this class is that science experiments enhance the concepts learned in Chemistry. As a result, learners have the option of participating in four experiments and one-hands on activity. Chemistry is a new concept for most. So, it’s best if introduced through experimentation with household items. But, even those students who are acquainted with Chemistry will better grasp the requirements of middle school Chemistry during this class. The experiments are actually fun for all involved which creates a relaxed learning environment which is conducive to retaining the scientific facts. My goal to spark a lifelong interest in the world of Chemistry.
we will be covering the following topics in this class:
- Nomenclature of carbon compounds containing functional groups (halogens, alcohol, ketones, aldehydes, alkanes and alkynes),
