Prosser, Wa (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
Red Comet’s enhanced and updated online high school Science core course takes the student on a journey of some of the advanced concepts of chemistry. The course allows students to explore issues and ideas related to chemical reactions, equations and formulas. The flexible, learner-centered approach offers a portfolio of innovative concepts designed to help the student understand that chemistry is a part of every aspect of our life. Our life functions depend on chemistry and every activity involves some form of chemical reaction.
The course explores chemical reactions that are of particular importance to humans. Students study examples of common solutions and know the differences among the processes of dissolving, melting, and reacting. The course explores how to predict the effect of a change in temperature, surface area, or pressure on the rate of a given physical or chemical change. Students use a decay curve for a radioactive isotope to find the age of the sample and develop the skills to explain how the decay curve is derived. The course examines the differences between nuclear fusion and nuclear fission by describing how each process transforms elements present before the reaction into elements present after the reaction.
