9th - 12th Grades

Description:

This Chemistry course is designed to give students the fundamental knowledge, analytical abilities, and laboratory skills necessary for applying and understanding inorganic chemical reactions, carbon and organic compounds, and biological chemistry. Students will cover the concepts of atomic and molecular structure, energy and matter, moles, bonding, stoichiometry, chemical equilibrium, ionic and covalent compounds, gasses, solutions, acids and bases, redox and nuclear chemistry, and thermodynamics. The purpose of this course is to expose students to a greater depth in the physical science of chemical reactions. The fundamental theories and laboratory techniques covered in this course will provide students with solid foundation so that will better enable them to explore other scientific fields, such as biology, physics, and geosciences. Students will demonstrate their critical thinking ability by answering analytical questions from their textbook and selected lab activities. The student should plan to be responsible for completing 3 to 6 hours of reading and assignments outside of class each week. The primary learning opportunity to obtain information will be through reading the text in the student’s own time. In class, the opportunities for learning will primarily consist of introduction to the topics, experiments, review of study guides, and tests.

The lab portion of this course is officially approved to gain the student a-g credit through South Sutter Charter School.

 

Prerequisite:

Completion of Algebra 1 with a grade of “C” or better.

Instructor Biography

Hello, Welcome.  I am the Science and Math group tutor at Inspire.  I teach high school math and sciences, and I love it.  I joke that "Algebra is my Love Language" and "Physics is my Passion".  This is my 4th year with Inspire and my 8th year tutoring.  I am a former Process Engineer from Silicon Valley, where I worked in the semiconductor industry with the machines that made computer chips.  I have a Bachelors degree in Math and Physics from Humboldt State University and Over 20 years of engineering experience.  I want to inspire the next generation in math, science and engineering.  I am here to bridge the gap for home school students and educate the future.  I look forward to having the opportunity to teach math and sciences to your students.  Write or call me at (530)613-2720 or CindyVoigt.ILA@gmail.com.
