Chemistry I
Credit 1.00

Essential Standards

Name and write formulas for ionic, covalent, and acidic compounds.  Justify why each type of compound is named accordingly using the rules of nomenclature.  

Explain the significance of a chemical mole and use it to calculate masses, number of atoms, and molecules involved in chemical reactions.

Apply stoichiometry to predict masses and quantitative amounts of reactants and products involved in chemical reactions.

Create electron configurations and orbital diagrams using the modern approach to atomic theory.

Predict molecular geometry and create structural models of chemical compounds, explaining how the structure and arrangement influence physical and chemical properties.  

Document scientific predictions, observations, and experiments by writing a formal laboratory report, complete with a full data analysis and conclusion.

Essential Standards

Summarize the physical and chemical properties of aqueous solutions and sketch the process of dissociation of ions at a molecular level.

Apply the properties of gas laws to understand how gases behave when changing variables, complete with support of number values derived from gas law equations. 

Synthesize solutions in the laboratory of various concentrations and defend how molarity affects rates of reactions.

Name and draw structural formulas of organic compounds.  Synthesize organic compounds in the lab and identify products that contain them.   

Design experiments by developing authentic procedures based on all instructional concepts learned to this point and implement the scientific method to create a formal lab report.
