Applied Chemistry follows the Chemistry in the Community (ChemCom) guidelines developed by the American Chemical Society (ACS). The course represents a major effort to improve science literacy through a high school chemistry course that emphasizes chemistry’s impact on society. ChemCom is taught on the “need to know” basis, with societal and technological issues/problems determining the depth and breadth of chemical concepts taught. The main areas of investigation in this course are: basic chemistry concepts, supplying our water needs, conserving chemical resources, petroleum consumption, nuclear chemistry in our world, chemistry of air, and chemistry related to climate.
