Chemistry is the study of matter and the changes that matter undergoes. Matter is all around us. In this class, some of the topics we will study include why the stars shine, why leaves change colors, how a battery generates electricity, what keeps food from spoilage, how consumer chemicals are made, and how our bodies use food to maintain life.
Chemistry can be a difficult class because the content focuses on abstract concepts and particles that can not be seen with the naked eye. This class will require dedication and hard work to be successful, but it offers rewards in knowledge and understanding of the world around us.
