This is our catalog of courses. We will occasionally adjust the course listing to reflect the addition of new courses and the retirement of others.
College-bound students will continue to enjoy discovering God’s creation at the atomic level in this rigorous Chemistry course — where you’ll learn Nuclear Chemistry, Chemical Reactions, Stoichiometry, States of Matter, Thermochemistry, and more!
Total classes: 35 (class meets twice per week). NOTE: One week the live classes may be changed to a pre-recorded class.
Prerequisite: Chemistry, Part One. If you wish to register for this class without having completed Part One of this course live, you must have instructor permission (email [email protected])
Suggested grade level: 11th to 12th grade; advanced 10th grade students may register.
Suggested credit: 1 full semester Chemistry or Science
We will be studying God’s creation at the atomic level and discovering how marvelous it is. This is a rigorous, college-prep Chemistry course. Over both semesters, we will cover a wide range of topics, including Structure of Matter, States of Matter, Chemical Reactions, Stoichiometry, Equilibrium, and Thermochemistry. We will also consider how Chemistry is important in our day-to-day life.
There will be three tracks through this class:
Topic 1: Chemical Quantities
Topic 2: Chemical Reaction
Topic 3: Stoichiometry
Topic 4: States of Matter
Topic 5: Solutions
Topic 6: Thermochemistry
Topic 7: Reaction Rates and Equilibrium
Topic 8: Acids and Bases
Topic 9: Nuclear Chemistry

Homework: Assignments include homework and a quiz with each chapter, unit tests, and a final exam. Most students will complete the weekly assignments in about 4 hours; some students need more time. Most assignments are completed online; some assignments will need to be hand-written, then scanned, and uploaded (as a PDF) for grading. Mrs. Dutton will be available to answer questions daily via the class discussion (forum). Mrs. Dutton will grade all assignments and give an overall grade for this course.
Class dates: Tuesdays and Thursdays, January 9 to May 16, 2023 (final exam due May 24). No class March 26 & 28, 2024 (Easter break) and May 9 (Ascension of Jesus).
