Calvert Chemistry is an online course with an in-depth study of matter and its interactions. Building on an understanding for the macroscopic properties of substances and the microstructure of substances, this chemistry course teaches the symbolic and mathematical world of formulas, equations, and symbols. Major concepts covered are measurement in chemistry, atomic structure, chemical formulas and bonding, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, gases, chemical equilibrium, and organic chemistry.
Students at this level should show development in their ability and understanding of scientific inquiry. Units contain experiments and projects that seek to develop a deeper conceptual meaning and actively engage students. Calvert Chemistry should be preceded by Calvert Algebra I and preceded or accompanied by Calvert Algebra II.
