Chemistry

Course Description

In this course, students will learn the structure of atoms and ions and gain an understanding of bonding that occurs in simple chemical compounds. Students will gain an in-depth understanding of the physical and chemical properties of atoms based on their position in The Periodic Table of Elements.  Safe, inquiry-based laboratory experiments will be conducted to develop an understanding of different types of chemical reactions, as well as how energy is conserved and transferred in reactions. 

Hello everyone! I am Mrs. Russell, your Chemistry Teacher.  Check out the sections below to learn about the exciting things we will do this semester. I love physical sciences, such as chemistry and physics, because of all of the real-world hands-on activities we can do.  Rocket Science is my favorite.  We're going to work hard and have some fun doing it.
