Honors Chemistry

Blue Ridge School

Honors Chemistry is a college preparatory lab science course designed for students with a keen interest in science. As the 2015-2016 school year progresses, I’ll be adding instructional units one at a time. You will be able to access those unit pages from this page.


The textbook for Honors Chemistry is Chemistry: Connections To Our Changing World (2000) published by Prentice Hall and authored by H. Eugene Lemay, Herbert Beall, Karen M. Robblee, and Douglas C. Brower. In addition, online text and interactive resources will be utilized throughout the course.
