This course is the comprehensive study of concepts, principles, and theories related to the field of Chemistry. Topics in this course include: models of atoms, patterns and trends in organization of elements in the periodic table, average atomic mass, metals, nonmetals, and metalloids, nomenclature of ionic compounds, binary compounds, and acids, valence electrons and bonds. In addition, the students examine the intensive and extensive properties of elements, compounds, and mixtures, mass and chemical reactions, and conservation of mass. They will also estimate the effect of temperature on solubility and rate of reaction, the different states of matter and properties of acids and bases. Students will focus on the different gas laws, chemical equilibrium, and particle motion in matter and endothermic and exothermic changes.
