Chemistry: Lecture and Laboratory
Teacher: Kathy Romanoff
Date/Time: Thursday - 10:45 AM to 12:15 PM
Grade Level: High School (9th-12th)
GA DOE 40.05100
Mrs. Romanoff has tried to instill a sense wonder in the classroom for over thirty years. Her desire is to assist her students, and today's technology makes that possible via email, video conferencing, and phone conversations. Lectures and laboratory experiments will provide the foundation for the class. Mrs. Romanoff believes the laboratory experience is essential to science. Chemistry encompasses the study of matter and its properties. We will explore the atom and its structure, bonding , and reactions: their spontaneity, energy exchanges, and speed. To round things out we will cover solutions, gases, and stoichiometry (quantitative tracking of chemicals in a reaction.)
Homework requires approximately 4 hours of study a week outside of class.
