Courses



Chemistry is THE central science. Welcome to the wonderful world of chemistry.  Chemistry is a college level class concerned with the observations of many men and women. A curiosity about the world around them is leading to a body of knowledge that is growing larger every day if not every hour.  Observation and curiosity will be very important in your study of chemistry. This course is also a preparatory class if you are interested in advancing your study of chemistry into the Advanced Placement Level.
