Welcome to Chemistry

  • Dear Parents and Students,

    CCUSD schools remain closed. There are supplemental education resources for all students, however, teachers are not in the schools and will not be available through March 27th. We are working with the Arizona Department of Education to understand more about school closures and our next steps. In the meantime, you may want to visit the two web pages linked below, one for COVID 19 updates, and one for at-home supplemental education resources. We will continue to provide updates as often as possible. We appreciate your patience during this unprecedented time.

    Welcome to Chemistry!!!

    Chemistry is the study of matter in terms of its physical and chemical properties, the transformations it undergoes, and the energy changes associated with those transformations.

  • The recommended pre-requisite for Chemistry is a passing grade of C or higher in Algebra 1/2 (B or higher for Honors Chemistry) and a passing score on the 9th grade AIMS Science Exam.  We also recommend that students pass the AZ Merit for Alegbra 1/2 with a score of 3 or 4.  Analysis of students exam scores in chemistry indicates that students who pass grade level standardized assessments are more successful in chemistry than students who do not.
