Course Description: Chemistry 2 Honors

This course is an extension of topics taught in Chemistry 1 Honors. Student work will focus on preparation for college-level chemistry. Laboratory work is an important part of this course, and students will be expected to demonstrate proficiency in a laboratory setting. The class is very rigorous and demands a high level of abstract thinking, memorization, working with symbols, problem-solving strategies, plus science and engineering applications and learning practices. Application of mathematical skills is paramount.

Topics of study include:

  • Molecular Geometry and Bonding

  • Quantum Mechanics, Bonding and Orbital Hybridization

  • Organic Chemistry

  • Stoichiometric Analyses of Chemical Reactions

  • Stoichiometric Analyses of Solutions

  • Stoichiometric Analyses of Gas (Laws)
