This one-year laboratory science course is intended to develop an understanding of the fundamental concepts of chemical science. This course meets the Nevada Academic Content Standards for Science. The disciplinary core ideas are: 1) Structure and Properties of Matter; 2) Chemical Reactions; and 3) Energy in Chemical Processes. Performance expectations for this course blend the core ideas with scientific and engineering practices and crosscutting concepts to support students in developing useable knowledge that can be applied across disciplines. Students will use mathematical computations, read scientific text, and write critically to analyze data in chemical investigations.
This course meets high school graduation requirements for science and college entrance requirements for laboratory science. Students who have successfully completed Chemistry may not receive subsequent credit for Physical Science 1- 2.
