Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries
How Outschool Works

Chemistry is one of the pillars of middle school science. In this course, Introduction to Chemistry II, your student will learn new chemistry concepts through a mix of hands-on experience with classic classroom preparation. We will break apart each concept, look at the parts, and then put them together to see the whole picture. There will be drawings, hands-on activities, and opportunities to practice concepts for better understanding. Each week will focus on a specific idea, and there will...
This class is taught in English.
At the end of this course, your student will be able to: - Create Lewis Electron Dot Diagrams for elements and compounds. - Describe the bonding differences between ionic and covalent bonds. - Explain the polar nature of water and describe how it gives it unique properties. - Investigate the properties of different substances and how they affect their ability to dissolve. - Identify what will cause a reaction to release (exothermic) or absorb (endothermic) energy using the reaction's chemical equation. - Describe what makes a substance acidic or basic and how to neutralize those substances.
I will provide OPTIONAL practice sheets to reinforce concepts from class.
1 file available upon enrollmentGuided notes are sent on Sundays. Optional: Paper, colored pencils, markers, or pens for notes. *There will be the option for lab activities at home with simple ingredients and household products. These are not mandatory and will be demoed in a class by the teacher. **I will upload a periodic table each student can print and use, or they can bring their own.
Formative: Frequent questions and prompts to engage in discussion and determine the level of understanding. Summative: Quiz with an answer key provided at the end of class.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
