Chemistry Class

At present, our chemistry class is involved in acquiring basic knowledge concerning terms, physical and chemical properties of matter, and the latest interpretation or theory on atomic structure. We are using a book called "Chemistry" by Garrett, Richardson, and Kiefer, which ahs a 1964 copyright date. Although students find the book demanding, they are making progress and appreciate the fact that we do have a current book from which to study. However, it appears the greatest student enjoyment in chemistry is in laboratory participation, which is scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is understandable since students have more freedom to work and progress on their own initiative.

The following students achieved a "B" or better average in chemistry for the first six weeks period:

Gail Crigger, Donna Houghton, Thomas Kaminski, David Kolacz, Mary Rassette, Jake Richter, David Trzemzalski, Anea Vlasopolos, William Walkiewicz and Elaine Wolak.

John Holodnick, Chemistry Instructor.
