US Grade 9 - 12
Follows Teacher-Created Curriculum
Aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
NGSS Standards and Topics:
NGSS Standards and Topics for both Semester 1 & 2 
HS-PS1-1. Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
HS-PS1-2. Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties. 
HS-PS1-3. Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles.
HS-PS1-4. Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in total bond energy.
HS-PS1-5. Apply scientific principles and evidence to provide an explanation about the effects of changing the temperature or concentration of the reacting particles on the rate at which a reaction occurs.
HS-PS2-6. Communicate scientific and technical information about why the molecular-level structure is important in the functioning of designed materials.
HS-PS1-7. Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction.
HS-PS1-8. Develop models to illustrate the changes in the composition of the nucleus of the atom and the energy released during the processes of fission, fusion, and radioactive decay. 
HS-PS3-1 Create a computational model to calculate the change in the energy of one component in a system when the change in energy of the other component(s) and energy flows in and out of the system are known.
HS-PS3-2. Develop and use models to illustrate that energy at the macroscopic scale can be accounted for as a combination of energy associated with the motion of particles (objects) and energy associated with the relative positions of particles (objects). 
HS-PS3-3. Design, build, and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.
HS-PS3-4. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that the transfer of thermal energy when two components of different temperature are combined within a closed system results in a more uniform energy distribution among the components in the system (second law of thermodynamics). 
HS-PS3-5.  Develop and use a model of two objects interacting through electric or magnetic fields to illustrate the forces between objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to the interaction.
HS-ETS1-1. Analyze a major global challenge to specify qualitative and quantitative criteria and constraints for solutions that account for societal needs and wants.
HS-ETS1-2. Design a solution to a complex real-world problem by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering.
HS-ETS1-3. Evaluate a solution to a complex real-world problem based on prioritized criteria and trade-offs that account for a range of constraints, including cost, safety, reliability, and aesthetics as well as possible social, cultural, and environmental impacts.
HS-ETS1-4. Use a computer simulation to model the impact of proposed solutions to a complex real-world problem with numerous criteria and constraints on interactions within and between systems relevant to the problem.
Homework Offered
All homework, quizzes, and exams are optional based on the needs of the student and if they are enrolled in a charter school, homeschooled, or just learning to learn. Types of Assignments: • Weekly Quizzes on past discussions • Midterm and Final Exam • AT HOME labs • Other creative projects to help solidify principles taught
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Each assignment turned in, will be graded. It is recommended that each student do all the assigned work and if you ask us for an overall grade, it will be based on the complete course. There is a Rubric of 30% Final Project, 20% Midterm, 20% Final Exam, 20% Homework and Labs,& 10% Quizzes.
Grades Offered
 1 file available upon enrollment
All "at home" labs are done with typical house hold products that you probably have on hand. If not, they are usually easily acquire at a grocery store. We also provide alternatives if for whatever reason those items are unavailable in your area. There might be a few craft supplies etc. for the engineering part (such has cardboard, glue, etc.). A full list of supplies will be available on the first day of class. Be sure to use eye protection and a smock/lab coat while conducting any experiment.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
This class uses chemicals and items from around the house to conduct the labs. None of them are particularly dangerous, however as per all chemicals, they should not be ingested. Be sure to conduct all "at home" labs in a well ventilated or outdoor space. There are warnings and caution notes about each reaction and what could potentially be harmful to the students. Be sure to have your student read through each lab and wear the safety equipment such as a smock/lab coat and eye protection when conducting the labs. 
Textbooks are NOT REQUIRED! They are just an additional resource for your student.
If your student works well with a textbook, the course is based out of Glencoe's Chemistry Matter and Change published by McGraw Hill. It won't matter what version you have as long as it is before 2013.

I am a lifelong learner and I hope I can pass that on to your student, so their life can be enriched by the power of learning! My motto as a teacher is to always teach the class that I would want to take as a student. :)
