    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While this course was extremely difficult and required lots of memorization, it is my favorite course that I am taking as a senior in high school. We learn not just how to balance oxidation-reduction reactions, but we learn exactly what happens chemically: one substance loses electrons, while another gains electrons. We carried out exciting experiments, and learned lots about science in the real world.

    Course highlights:

    I learned as much as is possible in one year about chemistry. We learned about redox equations, nomenclature, organic chemistry, spectrometry, electrochemistry, thermochemistry, and many other topics. The highlights of this course, however, are in the labs. For example, we dissolved brass in nitric acid, which produces a reddish-brown gas and a solution that changes from clear to green to dark blue (from the copper ions). Although this course is difficult, I would totally recommend it for students who want a challenge and an exciting course

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For this course, you will need to set aside plenty of time to study and complete lab write-ups. Write-ups make up 50% of the grade, and must be organized and thorough. This course requires a lot of memorization, so students should make and keep plenty of flashcards for studying. Students should also look over notes thoroughly before tests, and do practice problems in the textbook to help solidify concepts.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I thought this class was very well taught and interesting. We had very hands on activities and Mrs. Doubleday pushed us to do our best while still guiding us and helping us along the way. She was very happy and excited to teach us everyday and that made class more fun. Her excitement and encouragement is what made learning Chemistry so much more interesting and is now the reason I plan to major in Chemistry. Teachers have a huge impact of the lives of students and Mrs.Doubleday helped me to realize just how much I love the course and want to do more of it.

    Course highlights:

    I this course I learned about what Chemistry is and what it's composed of and went over the periodic table. We then moved onto learning about chemical equilibrium, chemical kinetics, stoichiometry, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, reaction types, states and structure of matter, and lab and chemical calculations. We learned a lot in a short amount of time but because it was touch very well and clearly it allowed us to understand and retain all of information we learned.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to read over the chapter you will be covering before class. This helps tremendously due to the fact that once you get to class you know what the teacher is talking about. The teacher will also just be refreshing your mind on it and doing into further detail about what you already know. This also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have had while reading or if you still do not understand what something means even after the teacher discussed it in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved Chemistry and it has been one of my favorite courses when it comes to science. But you really need to have a liking for this subject or you will not do too well in the class. Chemistry can be a very challenging class.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlights of this course was learning the the reactions of two chemicals mixing together and seeing what two elements can do with each other.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY. This is probably the best thing you can do for this class. It helps you out a ton. Don't be scared to ask for help either.
