This self-paced course is designed to meet the needs of students who are registered for WHA Chemistry or WHA Honors (Pre-AP) Chemistry but have not taken the prerequisite WHA Physics or Honors Physics course. In this course, students will work through progressive modules designed to introduce specific topics from the Physics course that will be needed for success in Chemistry. Topics include math skills and laboratory report writing; mass and energy; substances and their properties; atoms and atomic theory (for Honors students only). These topics are divided into modules (8 in total for Chemistry plus 4 additional for Honors Chemistry) Each module consists of a reading assignment, a video archive ( ~1.5 hours duration), independent homework assignment and a quiz. The quiz is self-grading and can be taken as many times as needed. A passing grade on the quiz is required to open the next module. Although this course is designed to accommodate flexible schedules, students should aim to set aside 10 hours per week for 3 weeks for Chemistry and 10 hours per week for 4 weeks for Honors Chemistry (~ 4 hours per module).

Textbook & Materials:  Novare Chemistry Supplement (ISBN: 978-0-9904397-0-7), American Educational Equal Mass Set, a 250ML graduated cylinder, a scientific calculator, and a graph paper notebook (such as a Mead composition book style).
