Chemistry Honors

Course Number: 
Course Term: 

Chemistry Honors is not required for students wanting to take AP science courses; Chemistry 1 is sufficient for this purpose.
Chemistry Honors covers all material that is covered in Chemistry, but with more depth and breadth. Topics like quantum mechanics, molecular geometry, thermodynamics, kinetics, dynamic equilibrium and electrochemistry are
covered in further detail at a level that prepares students for the SAT-2 Chemistry exam. Students should take Chemistry Honors if they have a strong interest in the sciences, prefer a high level of rigor in their
studies, and are able to accommodate their schedules for a much more significant time commitment than Chemistry would entail.

Chemistry Honors is available to sophomores, but upperclassmen have historically finished this very rigorous class with much more ease and much less sacrifice. Chemistry is an abstract science in which older students will have a distinct performance advantage.
