Class Experience

Students will have an better understanding of the electron and the vital role it plays in all atomic interactions
Students will have an understanding of light and how the electromagnetic spectrum works.
I have taught chemistry and chemical engineering at the college level, and have been teaching science to home school elementary, middle and high school students for 10 years.  I know how to present science in a fun way to boost students interest in the subject.
Each week a 1-2 page sheet of practice problems will be given for students to reinforce what they are learning in the class.  Teacher will provide feedback on all submitted work.
Notes pages for each lesson and practice problems will be provided by the teacher.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
