CHEMISTRY, PART 2

Price: $95 | Credits: 5 | Dept: Science

This course is designed to be the second semester of Chemistry and includes a laboratory component. The course includes the topics of stoichiometry, the limiting reagent, percent yield, solutions and solubility, acids and bases, gases and gas behavior, rates of reactions, the equilibrium constant, and LeChatelier’s principle.

In order to satisfy the University of California A-G requirements for a chemistry course, three components are required. The first is our online course, the second is a wet lab, and the third is a wet lab instructor. Our online chemistry course provides the curriculum with videos, quizzes, assignments and final. The wet lab and instructor have to be sourced separately. They are not provided by SVHS.

Lab Kit Requirement (Note: this companion kit is not included in this course and needs to be purchased separately)
The kit can be purchased from Quality Science Labs and delivered through the mail. This kit has been designed by SVHS and Quality Science Labs to accompany this course. The same kit can be used for Part 2 of this course–only one kit needs to be purchased for students taking Chemistry Part 1 and Part 2. To receive a discount on the lab kit, enroll in chemistry and use the customer code provided in the course.

Instructor Requirement
To meet the A-G standards, the University of California requires a teacher-supervised hands-on lab component that accounts for at least 20% of the class time. The instructor can be a teacher, or a tutor. Unfortunately, it’s not possible for a parent to act as the instructor, unless the parent is a credentialed science teacher. Some schools have wet lab facilities and some mobile wet lab companies offer the instructor and all the facilities in a van or truck that visits various schools and other locations. There are also specialist science camps that provide the wet lab component such as Lab Rat Academy.

Lab Details and Descriptions

Credits & Study Hours
Upon completion of this course, the student is awarded 5 credits. Each credit corresponds to 15 hours of study. Of course, some students work more quickly than others, and some can devote more hours to study, so some students are able to complete the course in an accelerated rate.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

In this module, students gain a comprehension of the following:

  • Stoichiometry, the limiting reagent, and percentage yield.
  • Water and life (as solutions), the properties of solutions, the dissolving process, solubility and saturation, dilutions, and colligative properties.
  • The properties of acids, bases, and the Arrhenius Theory.
  • The Bronsted-Lowry Theory of Acids and Bases.
  • Strong and weak acids and bases, the pH scale, and acid-base titration.
  • The kinetic molecular theory of gases, pressure, volume, and temperature, the ideal gas law, gas law problems, and gas law stoichiometry.
  • The rates of reaction, equilibrium constant, and LeChatelier’s Principle.
