Honors Chemistry (Period 2)

Garrett Lim

Course Description

Welcome to Mr. Lim's Chemistry Honors webpage. This class is designed to help you gain a fundamental background in chemistry and to develop a scientific way of thinking about life. This class is designed to help you succeed on the Common Core test in April and to serve as a foundation if you choose to move on to Advanced Placement (AP) Chemistry. I'm excited about what the year has in store for us and I hope that you enjoy the wonderful world of chemistry!
