January newsletter

Hi! This month students will be introduced to the world of chemistry though the use of lab experiments, computer simulations, and class discussions! We will be doing labs on polymers and non-Newtonian fluids, identifying unknown compounds, chemical and physical reactions,and separating mixtures. Students will be learning about lab safety and lab equipment, the periodic table of elements, the properties of matter, and chemical and physical changes. Toward the end of the month, we will begin our mathematical introduction to chemistry. Students should bring calculators, as we will be calculating the percent error and deviation of our measurements.
