Cooking with Chemistry


This is a hands-on class where we will learn all about Chemistry using FOOD! This is Kitchen Science, and we will cook food, do experiments and study the periodic table of elements while we see how chemistry is part of our every day lives.

Homework

We will be doing the experiments mostly in class, although some you may need to take home in order to finish allowing the chemical reaction to complete.  

Each week you'll have about 3-5 hours of homework which can include (not necessarily all) reading a chapter or two (25-50 pages), watching chemistry videos, additional readings, and answering questions. You'll also prepare 1 or 2 short presentations.  

Notes

Basic math skills are all that are necessary for this class.
