Main goal: After taking this course, students will be ready to solve enough problems to do well at the annual Local Chemistry Olympiad Competition in March and qualify for the USNCO. The student will be better prepared for chemistry-problem solving required for Chemistry AP and CBE exams.
|Who||Students in grades 9th-11th, occasional 7th-8th graders, who took at least one chemistry class and are familiar with basic chemistry concepts such as atoms, molecules, periodic system, chemical equations, stoichiometry, etc.|
12:30pm - 1:30pm CST
|Course Size||Maximum 25 students, minimum of 6|
Fall 2020 Semester:
September: 12, 19, 26
October: 3, 17, 24, 31
November: 7, 14, 21
December: 5, 12
No classes: Oct 10, Nov 28, Dec 19
To maximize learning, students are strongly encouraged to attend the weekly online Q&A session. However, attendance is not a mandatory requirement to enroll in the course.
|Additional Benefits||This course will go a long way to enhance student's problem-solving skills and provide them with problem-solving strategies required in high-school chemistry, Chemistry AP and CBE, and most importantly, competitive chemistry like USNCO. The student will be exposed to the wonders of Chemistry and its importance in the pantheon of sciences.|
|Expected Prior Knowledge||Prior exposure to chemistry is required (for example, concepts such as atoms, molecules, periodic system, chemical equations should be familiar to the student). Algebra 1 proficiency required.|
