Chemistry Credit Recovery - Part B

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course adheres closely to standards for the teaching of chemistry. It emphasizes the mathematical, theoretical, and experimental basis of modern chemistry. Emphasis is placed on the use of theoretical and mathematical concepts to explain and predict chemical behavior.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES: This course has been specifically built with the credit recovery student in mind. The course content has been appropriately grouped into smaller topics to increase retention and expand opportunities for assessment. Students engage in learning through multimedia activities, enhancing the information through contextual presentations. Post-topic quizzes are presented with each topic of content. Audio readings are included with every portion of content, allowing auditory learners the opportunity to engage with the course. Test pools and randomized test questions are utilized as well as unit exams, ensuring that students taking the course will not be presented with the same assessment content. The course included pre-topic vocabulary lists that introduce the content vocabulary in English and in Spanish.
