Chem Honors


November 18, 2019

This week we will finish Unit 5, Nuclear Chemistry, as we aim for the test next Monday. There is no lab this week; instead we will see videos explaining the three major nuclear power plant accidents that have occurred over the last 40 years.


The calendars through October have been moved to the Calendar Archives page, where all links will remain active for the entire school year.
