    Description:

    The Physical Setting/Chemistry is a core �based course which ends in a Regents Examination.  A minimum of 1200 minutes of hands-on laboratory experiences with satisfactory lab reports are required above and beyond the classroom instructional seat time.


    The Physical Setting/Chemistry Core Curriculum is an elaboration of the science content of the MST Learning Standards.  In addition to Standards 1, 2, 6 & 7, this course is expected to prepare students to understand and apply scientific concepts, principles, and theories pertaining to the physical setting and recognize the historical development of ideas in science.  The topics of atomic concepts, periodic table, stoichiometry, chemical bonding, matter, kinetics/equilibrium, organic chemistry, oxidation-reduction, acids/bases/salts and nuclear chemistry  are addressed in three key ideas: the characteristics and reactivity of matter; the forms and conservation of energy; the interaction of energy and matter.
