Course Overview

The Advanced Chemistry course is designed around the AP Chemistry Curriculum
Framework established by the College Board. The course is presented through the lens
of scientific inquiry—the process of channeling human curiosity into purposeful
exploration, discovery, and application of observable natural phenomena. In this course,
students will grow to understand their physical world in a deep way. At the same time,
an inquiry and STEM-oriented approach to chemistry offers students a shared method
of asking questions about the world around them. Their experience and knowledge from
this course—tied to a strong emphasis on qualitative and quantitative analysis and
communication—is designed to enable them to understand important scientific and
societal problems and to creatively grapple with such problems.

In this blended online course (employing both online and face-to-face learning),
students will be taught and encouraged to continually pose questions about the subject
matter. Through exploration and discovery of the phenomenon at the core of each
lesson, students will be guided to answer their own questions and will be able to discuss
the phenomenon in ways that reflect sound scientific practices.

In particular, students will explore the six content areas that have been identified as the
focus of the AP Chemistry course:

• Atoms and Elements—composition of matter, conservation of matter, atomic
structure, spectroscopy, periodicity, and Coulomb’s Law
• Properties of Matter—states of matter, physical properties, gas behavior, kinetic
molecular theory, solutions, intermolecular and intramolecular interactions, the
Lewis structure model, and the VSEPR model
• Chemical Reactions—chemical equations, types of chemical reactions, endoand exothermicity, and electrochemistry
• Kinetics—rate laws, reaction mechanisms, activation energy, and factors affecting reaction rates
• Thermodynamics—energy transfer, conservation of energy, enthalpy,
calorimetry, potential energy and geometric arrangement of atoms, and entropy
Equilibrium—reversible reactions, reaction quotients, Le Chatelier’s principle,
acid-base chemistry, solubility, and Gibbs free energy

We are super proud of him and appreciate your support! Christopher has had some great positive things to say. It’s really cool that he is connecting with kids and teachers from all over – a great “virtual” way to open up his world and perspective. 

We are so glad!

This is our 1st year homeschooling and we are so glad that we chose Dolphin STEM Academy
