Honors Chemistry has a greater emphasis on the quantitative aspects of chemistry and critical thinking problems at an accelerated pace.  Honors Chemistry is a two semester NGSS standards based course.  Students will be introduced to the basic Chemistry concepts needed to be a chemically literate and environmentally responsible citizen.  Students will learn to apply Chemistry knowledge during inquiry activities, labs and field studies in our surrounding wetlands ecosystems. Through explorations and investigations students will develop an understanding of the personal, social, environmental and ethical implications of Chemistry. The units of study will be taught in an environmentally themed course.
