Welcome to Chemistry with Utah’s Electronic High School.
The Chemistry Core Curriculum has two primary goals: (1) students will value and use science as a process of obtaining knowledge based on observable evidence, and (2) students’ curiosity will be sustained as they develop the abilities associated with scientific inquiry.
Chemistry is organized around major concepts of matter, structure, energy, and change. The "Benchmarks" in the chemistry Core emphasize the principles and laws that describe the conservation of matter, changes in the structure of matter, and changes in energy. Substances can be described by their chemical structure or properties. Substances can be made of molecules and these molecules are made of atoms. The properties of water are very different from the properties of hydrogen or oxygen of which it is composed. When parts come together, the whole often has properties that are very different from its parts. The formation of compounds results in a great diversity of matter from a limited number of elements. When matter combines, energy is absorbed or released and matter is rearranged to make new substances with new properties.
