Atoms are the basic building blocks of all matter. The computer you are reading this on, the building you are in, the beverage you are drinking, you, me, the air we breathe are all made of atoms and molecules. Chemistry is the study of atoms and molecules and how they interact and react. Students will learn about atoms and molecules, elements, solutions, mixtures, chemical reactions, and matter. We will conduct experiments and complete projects to enhance the topics we are learning about...
