This course is taught from a Creation perspective. We will use Dr. Wile’s new book, Discovering Design with Chemistry. Topics will include the metric system, atoms, molecules, elements, the periodic table, bonding, stoichiometry, ions, solutions, gas laws, acid/base reactions, thermodynamics, kinetics, and equilibrium. Each week we will have a one-hour lecture/discussion period (using PowerPoint slides), followed by a lab period.

The lab period will alternate between Chemistry labs and a math tutoring time. Students often have difficultly understanding the math that goes with each chapter, so we will focus on that every other week. We will still do at least one lab with each chapter.

We will spend approximately two weeks on each chapter. Students will be given pages to read each day at home, and questions to answer. Short quizzes will be given for each chapter online. Mr. Sanders is always available by phone or email, and is happy to answer any questions or concerns that arise.
