Regents Chemistry

Course Description: Chemistry is the study of matter, all of the elements that compose it, and all of the reactions it can undergo. To gain a complete understanding of chemistry, a number of different learning strategies will be employed. These various strategies will allow students to learn by becoming actively involved in the material. Laboratory work is an integral part of this experience. The course is taught following the New York State Regents curriculum and it is intended that all students will take the Regents Exam at the end of the semester.
