Chemistry includes a strong emphasis on the nature of matter and energy and their interactions. In addition, juniors discover insights into the impact of chemistry and the advances in chemical technology on our world. The course demonstrates the predictability of chemical behavior through a rigorous application of mathematical skills. The studies of solutions, acids and bases, chemical kinetics, and the equilibrium of reversible reactions are emphasized as well. Students develop laboratory techniques and demonstrate concepts learned in class through the use of hands-on laboratory experiments.
