Ms. Smith teaches
10th grade Technical Chemistry with team teachers,
Mrs. Schoolcraft and Mr. Canova. In this class, our students
learn about the composition, structure, and properties of matter.
Our students study the periodic table, chemical reactions, and
stoichiometry. We do several fun activities, including a spectroscopy lab
and a tie-dye lab (see
links for examples).
