Florida Chemistry A/B

Florida Chemistry is a re-designed course that is 100% aligned to the Chemistry 1 standards in the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for Science. This inquiry- and lab-based course is designed to support modern science curriculum and teaching practices. It also addresses concepts deemed essential to a full-year high school chemistry course, such as molar concentrations, acid-base reactions, advanced stoichiometry, gas laws, and organic compounds. Each lesson includes one or more inquiry-based activities that can be performed online within the context of the lesson. In addition, the course includes a significant number of hands-on lab activities. Approximately 40% of student time in this course is devoted to true lab experiences, as defined by the National Research Council (2006, p. 3).
