Course Description: This course offers an in-depth investigation of chemistry concepts such as physical and chemical properties of matter, energy, chemical nomenclature, mole relationships, chemical equations, stoichiometry, gas laws, atomic theory, periodicity, bonding, solutions, and acid-base theory. Students will be expected to use mathematical problem-solving, critical thinking, and communication skills in student-directed labs and classroom experiences. This course is designed for college-bound students. In addition, extensive independent work, self-discipline, and commitment to meet rigorous expectations and timelines are required. This course will prepare you to take the Advanced Placement Exam in Chemistry in May 2020.
Course Assessment Plan/ Grading Scale: Standards-Based Grading will be using. The paper attached explaining Standards-Based grading or you may use this link: https://tinyurl.com/yywqym7x
In standards based grading the student’s grade is based only on assessments, homework and classwork are just practice. Each standard will make up an equal portion of the student’s grade and each standard will have several assessments as evidence of content mastery.
*Grade recovery is the responsibility of the student. If they have a low assessment grade they must arrange a time to make up this grade. Grade recovery for a previous nine weeks will be handled on a case by case basis because students have so many opportunities to fix their grades during the nine weeks.
