This course introduces students to chemistry by investigating real-world problems. Each unit starts with a contemporary chemistry related concern that serves as a motivational framework upon which appropriate chemistry is introduced and developed. Through lab investigation and skill building exercises, students investigate key chemical concepts typically found in a first-year high school course. Topics covered include solution chemistry, atomic structure and bonding, properties of materials, petroleum chemistry, thermodynamics, atmospheric chemistry and the gas laws. The course is designed for students currently enrolled in algebra one.
