Chemistry/Barbara Borges


How lucky you are! And, how lucky I am to have YOU for a whole year in chemistry class ;) I am going to do everything I can to make chemistry the best class you ever had. Together we will discover what’s inside the stuff that makes up our world. After all, chemistry is the study of matter and energy and the interactions between them; what more is there? I challenge you to try and list 3-4 items or activities that do NOT involve chemistry. Good luck!

Chemistry is the best class because it helps you understand the way the world really works. We will explore the science that is chemistry, its history, its creativity, and its technologies. We will discover the good, the bad and the really ugly. At the end of this class, I guarantee that you will be a stronger person and a better student. Hang in there. If nothing else, remember that chemistry is great for revolting smells, awesome fireworks, and things that are gooey and icky.

You can now find almost all assignments for this class in the "Calendar" tab on the left side of this page. The calendar entries are “hot-linked” to your documents. You will see due dates when you “click” the assignment.
